Cry Baby, Cockspur, Fireman's Cap Tree, Brazillian Coral Tree (Erythrina crista-

Bainbridge, GA

I know of two cry baby trees in south Georgia. I have one in my yard and there is one in the yard of the lady from whom I got my plant. My husband has had a few encounters with the thorns while mowing the grass. I keep mine cut back so that it does not become a tree. Its appearance is even interesting in the winter when the bark shreds from the trunk. Humming birds love it!
