Coral Bean, Toombs County

Coral Bean (Erythrina herbacea) is one of South Georgia’s most colorful native plants, though it’s rarely found in great numbers. It’s widely cultivated by home gardeners for its showy red flowers as a treat for hummingbirds. I grow it in my own yard and think everyone who loves native plants should give it a try.

    Always wondered what the name of this plant was. I see it a lot in the spring turkey woods along the Ocmulgee. It really is a pretty plant, and the hummingbirds do like it. .
