Erythrina latissima - Rare Broad Leaved Coral Tree

Availability: In stock

Packet of 5 seeds of this rare and unusual member of the Coral Tree family.

The most unusual of the African Coral trees, this species lacks the thorns and prickles which are typical of its relatives. The leaves are soft and felt-like and are much larger than the other species, hence its common name. Relatively slow growing, it will form a medium shrub or a small tree 3 - 4 metres tall. The flowers are typically showy as in all of its relations. These are followed by seed pods containing hard, bright red seeds.

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