This flowering plant, called Red Bird of Paradise or Mexican Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia pulcherrima), is commonly used in desert landscaping because it is drought tolerant and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. I think the red and orange flowers and ferny foliage look especially nice against blue sky. Have a wonderful week!
