One of my favorite plants in our yard is the Baja Fairy Duster, Calliandra californica. Per its name, it’s native to Baja, California, but the plant itself loves our yard and has self-seeded, producing multiple young plants.
This shawl uses a modification of Barbara Walker’s Mexican Edging for the pretty scalloped border.
