“Coast Coral Tree”
The perfect tree to brighten up those dull Winter months! “Coast Coral Tree” is considered magical by the Zulu culture, producing scads of bright coral-red flowers all Winter & into Spring when the leaves have fallen. Get ready to be inundated with hummingbirds - they will hover in line for a chance at these nectar-rich blooms! The fruits of this tree are small (2.5” long), necklace-shaped pods that contain gorgeous red & black seeds, known as “lucky beans”, which age to a rich mahogany & are often used in folk jewelry. Growing about 20-40’ high with a spread of around 25-35’ on average - the size can vary greatly depending on climate & soil conditions. Prefers moist soil, but will tolerate dry conditions in coastal regions. Caution: Hard-shelled seeds can be poisonous to some animals.
