Erythrina crista-galli in bloom

This one is's a seedling of another Erythrina crista-galli I have. It has a softer coral color and is almost totally without any prickles on the leaves or stems. I got a lot of seed several years ago from one of my plants and grew a bunch of them for fun. I was tossing them in the fall since I was out of room and by chance realized that this one wasn't scratching me, so I kept it.

Anybody else in a cold zone got something in bloom? Bob

Since you are Hoosierbob are you in Indiana? I got that from the sitcom "The middle". Sorry if I am wrong. I have some Lillies in bloom Asiatic lilies, sorry no pics of them, though. Your plants are pretty, are they zone 6 hardy or annuals?

RE: Erythrina crista-galli in bloom

Yes sir, I am in Indiana. Erythrinas are subtropical shrubs/trees, that take some cool temps, but no real freezes. I grow them in tubs in the summer and they go into the basement in the winter.
