  • Erythrina indica
    Indian Coral Bean

    A medium-sized, deciduous, tropical tree that can grow to about 9-30 feet (6-9 m) as a standard tree. Young stems and branches have thick conical spines up to ¼ inch (8 mm) long. These thorns fall off after about 2-4 years leaving behind a bark that has gone from smooth and green, to coarse and cork like, a most featuresque aged look that would make a perfect bonsai work of art.

    Bright emerald-green leaves fill the tree during the growing season then fall, leaving the tree bare but, for a brief time, followed by a spectacular show of coral red blooms. Birds fill the tree like a busy aviary along with a multitude of pollinators during this bloom cycle

    Many of our customers grow them in pots and bring indoors when the weather turns rough.

    Fun Facts:
    1. Erythrina comes from the Greek word ‘eruthros’ meaning red
    2. The tree blooms in January - February
