One of the most impressive erythrinas, this is a very rare hybrid of hortucultural origin. It produces flowers before its new leaves or just as the leaves begin to show. The flowers are a beautiful intense crimson color with a gradient to pink and white. Petals are very long and elegant. The flowers produce abundant nectar that attracts many nectar-feeding birds and insects, which attract the insect-feeding birds as well.

The Erythrina coralloides flowers come on when the tree has few if any leaves. The wood of this tree is weak and it can use some pruning to keep it from breaking itself down. The flowers have a hint of a purple hue. Bicolor form of the common Naked Coral Tree has white flower clusters, red flower clusters and mixed colored clusters. This hardy tropical tree is probably the most cold tolerant of the coral trees. Drought-tolerant; suitable for xeriscaping.

Cuttings root easily. Erythrina is a genus containing some 100 trees and shrubs, most with spiny trunks and branches and a number that produce strikingly beautiful flowers.
