Erythrina caffra - African Coral Tree

Availability: In stock

Packet of 5 seeds.

Related to the more common (in general cultivation) Coral Tree, this is a truly superb flowering tree/shrub. This will grow into a 9-12 metres tree, although pot culture will severely restrict its eventual size. The bark is covered with short prickles. The leaves have 3 segments. These are preceded by spectacular scarlet flowers in Spring, which in the wild attract birds. The flowers are followed by seed pods containing bright red seeds.

Hardy to Zone 11 only, so use as a spectacular house/conservatory plant. Would also do well planted out in a greenhouse border, provided the greenhouse is kept frost-free.
