Yes, it is quite tricky, Dan. Apparently, Calliandra and Albizia can be told apart by their seed pods and fruit. Their growing zones also overlap! I think it’s not possible to identify the genus from these pictures unless Marek adds more photos of the fruit, which are basically pea pods. :-)
It can be hard to ID these powder puff flowers sometimes, it may also be the Persian Silk Treehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albizia_ju...
Possibly C. parvifolia: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c...There are more than 100 species in the genus, so I can’t say for certain. It also resembles C. surinamensis, however, the leaves didn’t appear to match.
