Canyon Color

We had no trouble spotting these Coral Bean (Erythrina flabelliformis) flowers on the Bluff Trail. Unlike most flowering plants, these flowers generally appear (as here) before the leaves. (page 99 in Rose) This plant is in the Pea family, but all parts are toxic, especially the fruits (beans). Do not eat.
