Related to the more common (in general cultivation) Coral Tree, this is a truly superb flowering tree/shrub. This will grow into a 10-12 m 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 as they produce copious nectar. The flowers are followed by seed pods containing bright red seeds.
Very similar in most respects to the African Coral Tree.
Hardy to Zone 9, if planted in a sheltered location (protect from all frost when young), otherwise use as a spectacular house/conservatory plant. Would also do well planted out in a greenhouse border.
