Erythrina fusca

The coral tree (Erythrina fusca) is the official city tree of Los Angeles, and is widely planted in frost-free areas. We have large one at our place, and while it needs annual pruning, we never cut back as far as this specimen. I feel sad for street trees that get pruned to within an inch of their lives.
