Erythrina stricta var. suberosa

Erythrina stricta var. suberosa

Botany Photo of the Day will have brief written entries on weekends, holidays and my vacations from April through September. – Daniel

Thank you to Dinesh from India (aka dinesh_valke@Flickr) for today's colourful photograph (original image | Flickr BPotD Group Pool). It's very much appreciated!

It is far more common that this coral tree is presented with the scientific name Erythrina suberosa online, but its taxonomic status was changed in 1992 to being recognized as only a variety of Erythrina stricta. It is native to southeast and south Asia.

Additional photographs of this plant by Dinesh can be seen in this Flickr grouping.


Just a gorgeous photo! I like this species of Erythrina - the upright blossoms in particular.

Wow, incredible! How big are the flowers?

WOW!! What a fantastic colour!! Beautiful photo.
