Next to marsh in Rockville. Hummingbirds like it
this is an attractive type of bean called coral bean, Erythrina herbacea. The beans when ripe are exposed and are a bright red color. However, as with most wild red beans, they are very toxic. In fact, the entire plant is poisonous to people if eaten. Yet it is a wonderful wildflower, and it does attract hummingbirds. In the tropics, Erythrina species are usually trees.
