Dwarf Coral Tree Overview

The dwarf coral tree is an ideal tree or shrub for the small garden, especially for people who love the scarlet flowers of the common coral tree (Erythrina lysistemon) but don't have the space for a large tree. Its small dimensions make it ideally suited to high density housing complexes where garden space is limited. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga.
