|This tree's thin branches sometimes droop form the weight of its many coral red and yellow flowers and .5 inch long, grooved seed capsules. Foliage is light to golden green ranging from long and slim to round. Well placed as a grove for its exceptional flower display. The foliage of nearly all species has a strong pungent odor similar to menthol. Well drained soil is preferable. Trees do very well planted from seed. Plant seeds in spring or summer keep shaded and water sparingly until 2 to 3 inches high.
