Coral tree

Erythrina indica picta commonly called Coral tree originated in India and Australia.

The Coral tree comes from the Leguminosae family.

It is a bushy tree, prized for its flowers, whose red flame colour offers an interesting contrast to its beautiful large variegated leaves. These striking leaves are cream to golden yellow and glossy green in colour.

Coral trees have a large spreading canopy. These trees have adjusted well in Guyana and the Caribbean, They can be seen blooming on the hillsides of the drier regions in the Caribbean.  Hummingbirds are attracted to the Coral trees.

Lightly trim trees once or twice per year to keep their attractive appearance.

Until next week, Happy Gardening!
