Dais cotinifolia (Pom-Pom tree / Pincushion tree / African button flower)
One of most prolific flowering trees, with the entire tree being transformed into a giant pink candy-floss during spring. Normally growing as a neat, slender, medium to small sized tree, with decorative, almost luminous, blueish-green leaves, a lovely, leafy, rounded crown and a willowy, upright form, often multi-stemmed. Hardy and wonderfully ornamental, it has been cultivated in Europe since the early 1700’s. The name Dias means “torch” in Greek, and refers to the shape of the flowers.
