Erythrina crista-galli also called coral bush or coral tree, is a fairly rare plant and can be admired in few gardens.
The unprecedented beautiful bloom of the Coral bush immediately suggests that this is a special plant. This is certainly one of the most beautiful flowering shrubs available.
The older the coral tree, the better it becomes.

If you are in possession of this beauty, your grandchildren can also enjoy this later, they grow old and grow slowly.
It is a great tub plant that does not require any difficult care, and in a sheltered and sunny location it is also well worth it.
The Erythrina crista galli originates from Brazil.
There it can grow up to 6 meters high, with us it will stay with a shrub of up to 200 cm (is the pruning method).
The pruning is the same as a rose bush. In the spring, your pruned bare Coral shrub will quickly run out.
Many carmine flowers will soon be on the end of these new shoots. The rugged rough trunk also creates a nice contrast with the bush itself.

The inflorescence are clusters of about 30 cm long and consist of many chanteram-like flowers of about 5 cm in length. Blooms on the annual wood of the bush.
These colors change from green to bright red and the flowering starts in June and continues until the end of August.
It is a deciduous shrub that can be pruned back to 3 eyes in late autumn. On the old trunk are some thorns that resemble those of a rose bush.
As a container plant, it may over winter cool at a temperature of + 5 ° C and is of little importance. Giving little water, at least that the soil just does not dry out is sufficient in the winter.
Winter hardiness zone 9a (-3ºC).

Heeft gelijk goed gebloeid dit jaar met 2 lange takken. Heeft gelijk al een mooie dikke stam gevormd van zo’n 7 cm. dikte. Al echt een boompje. Nu straks terugsnoeien voor de winter.

De plant na 4 jaar voor het eerst in bloei al was het pas in oktober .

Bloemen niet zo groot als aangegeven maar dat kan aan het late tijdstip liggen.

Wel mooie bloemen .
