Erythrina vespertilio (Batwing Coralbean)

Fabaceae

This attention getting shrub has been growing on site here for years, dying back to the woody root system each winter and quickly growing back in spring. A most unusual texture is created with the mass of blue, batwing shaped foliage. It never produces its red flowers here due to the annual dieback, but in warmer areas of Houston it might attain a size where it does.
