Help with identifying two trees

dana_2007March 12, 2007


I live in central Israel, and the following are two trees I've spotted and haven't been able to identify. I was hoping someone could help me recognize the trees, or at least point me in the direction of which family they belong to.

This is the first:

It's completely bare except for the red blossoms.

The second is:

The blossoms are orange, but the tree is still mostly green. This isn't a trait of one random tree - all of the 'red trees' are bare, and all of the 'orange trees' are still leafy.

Hope this was the right forum to ask this in, and I appreciate any help you can give me.

The usual forum is Name That Plant.

Both are without doubt species of Erythrina (coral-trees, coral-beans).

My first thought was E. lysistemon for the one with narrower flowers, E. caffra for the broader flowers. But with some doubts. Both are southern African species.
