Coral Bean - USE CODE "CNFL07"
The coral bean
plant is somwhat elusive as most of the year it is just a jumble
of bare twigs. During these times, the plant is most recognizable
by the color of the beans in the dark brown pods - a bright coral
red-orange. I found these plants in a ravine off the side of the
Mount Lemmon highway after stopping to photograph the flowers of
an agave (2001).
