Erythrina humeana | Dwarf coral tree for sale | Kleinkoraalboom te koop
Dwarf coral tree is mildly frost, and somewhat drought tolerant. It is a small, compact, deciduous tree, known for its beautiful, large, red flowers. Erythrina humeana may flower more than once in a season. When its pods split open, they exhibit bright red seeds.
A few gardening ideas:
The Dwarf coral tree has swollen tuber-like roots and should be planted about 1 meter from any paving. It is a small tree and thus an excellent choice for a very small garden. Plant it in well drained soil to prevent root rot, and be careful not to over water the tree -especially during winter when it is without leaves. Erythrina humeana will grow in a container and responds well to pruning. It is an undiscovered jewel.
Value to honeybees: Nectar, N0-2; Extrafloral Nectar, EN0-1; Pollen, P0-1; Flowering months 11-4. (See blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
