Native Coralbean is a thorny shrub with brilliant red flowers. It dies to the ground in the winter, but comes back in the spring and grows quickly to 3-6ft.

Coralbean sports a tropical look, and attracts hummingbirds. Its seeds are poisonous if ingested. It grows best in well-draining spots. It appreciates some protection from the hot, evening sun.
