Erythrina speciosa 'Pink' (Pink Coral Tree) - This is a deciduous small tree or multi-stemmed shrub to about 16 feet tall with large broad leaves that are hairy when young and narrow pale pink flowers that can appear just about anytime from late winter through fall - flowers in winter and spring often blooming on naked stems much like the Naked Coral Tree, Erythrina coralloides. Plant in full sun with regular to occasional irrigation. Has proven hardy to at least 28 F at our nursery. This species comes from souteastern Brazil where it is found growing in swampy areas or along watercourses. The species is typically red flowering but this pink flowering form was growing at the San Diego Zoo and we were given cuttings of it in the late 1980s.  The information that is presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they know of cultural information that would aid others in growing  Erythrina speciosa 'Pink'.
