Mad Snapper and Bobby Appleseed's Grandkids

Last summer Sandra, AKA MadSnapper, was offering seeds to anyone who wanted them.  I asked for some because her flowers were so pretty, so of course I'd love to have some. :)  I received those seeds in the mail September 2011.  We've been emailing each other ever since. :) 
These seeds , AKA Sandra and Bob's grandkids, grew into lovely plants and are finally starting to bloom!  The one you will see here in the pics is the Dwarf Poinciana.  
Hubby has planted these in all kinds of plastic containers.  From what Sandra told us, if we were to plant the Dwarf Poinciana in the ground it will grow into a 6 to 20ft tree!  We will eventually put at least one in the ground.  The other plant hasn't bloomed yet, it's a Dwarf Powderpuff.

gorgeous, stunning even and they look just like their grandmother... LOL. they look great, hope the Puff blooms soon. bob says the puff needs water every day, not a lot but it loves water and will not bloom unless in full sun with water every day.

Oh wow, those are just gorgeous. They have come a long way from those little sprouts you showed us last year. I love your close-up photos with the tendrils(?) reaching for the sky.
