The Coral Tree [ Erythrina Lysistemon ] is one of my favourite trees in South Africa. Every winter it looses all its leaves and then begins to flower - see V2 for a section of a tree in flower.
Thanx so much for all the kind votes and comments on yesterday's upload - much appreciated Smile

WOW Herman that woke my eyes up [have just crawled out of bed via a phone call from my son]. The colour is wonderful, neither red nor orange [in my sleepy eyes]; it looks like a succulent ? The perspective you have used makes it look like a King among flowers. I like this when I saw it on Face Book and I like it even more now that I can see a larger version of it.

I remember having these trees in our garden when I was growing up in South Africa. Am I right in thinking it is also known as The Lucky Bean tree? We used to collect the "beans" which were small, bright red with a black dot on them. Ann.
