Wow! that is a gorgeus picture.
Evidently when this plant lives in a frost free climate it really does its thing. Mine dies back to the gound in the winter here in Arlington Texas
therefore it never gets very big. Even though it is called Coral bean, the flowers are actually a bright fuchia pink. Is this plant in your garden?
Right now I am in the process of trying to propagate it from the seeds that I collected recently. I hope I will be sucessful.
Sincerely, Josephine Keeney.
