These trees are in full bloom...

...but I have no idea what they are called. There is a whole row of them lining Riverside Drive in Perth and I simply love it when they are in bloom. I find these trees absolutely elegant. The trunk leans ever so slightly and the branches all grow out in a certain way. The red blooms just top it all off.

If you know what they are called, could you please tell me?


  1. I think it is called the coral tree or flame tree (not the Illawarra flame tree though) it is an Erythrina. If it's the one I think it is. Are the idividual flowers shaped like a pea pod?

  2. So pretty! No idea what it is...but it sure is pretty!

  3. Thanks for that Mugsie, it is Erythrina. (I did a quick Google images search) Thanks so much!
