I photographed this interesting specimen almost a month ago on my way to a mountain hot spring resort near Taipei. I had no idea what was it, until I saw the same tree in the Taipei Botanical Garden recently.
Costal Coral Tree apparently as you can see is a deciduous tree and flowers in the late winter to early spring. The red color flowers on top of the up-right tree branch with no leaves make a very spectacular showing.
