The Sunshine Tree has one of the most beautiful foliage of all the tropical trees. In tropical locations they can easily reach 30'-40' in height. It does need full sun, a good amount of water during the summer and a little drier during the winter when it goes dormant and will shed most of its leaves. In the spring, bright scarlet flowers emerge first followed by the beautiful foliage. Unfortunately perhaps due to its variegation, this
Erythrina is not a prolific bloomer like the green forms. The Sunshine Tree is a tropical tree but it can withstand temperatures in the high 20's for short periods of time.
