|30-40 cm ↑|The plants is called coral tree because of the beautiful red flowers and the filigree fingered foliage. Although all parts of the plant are both irritating and toxic, the roots are cut into pieces, roasted and eaten. The plants are used for the production of fish poison. The ripe, dry seeds contain a rather bitter and dangerous oil, which sometimes finds medical use in rheumatism or to treat parasitic infestations. Our opinion: better dont eat this plant, it is dangerous - and it is too beautiful!
