Erythrina fusca - locally called Copna, Coastal Coral Tree or Coral Bean Tree
Pan-Tropical - seeds floats with ocean currents. Will grow all most any where - like swampy land though - but not limited to that. My 2 are growing right on the seaside. They took a lick during the development of the land and showed no signs of stress, a very hardy tree that teems with life. Spiny bark, delicate flowers that bloom only a few months in the spring, highly productive with bees/butterflies/birds/ants, very hardy and has long pod seeds.
