Coral Bean - The red seeds of Coral Bean (Erythrina herbacea) remain nestled in their open pod. They are toxic to humans, and since they have persisted into the late Winter it seems likely that there are no animals there that eat them.
Pictured above is a mature seed-head of Banksia integrifolia. This small tree often called the Coastal Banksia grows in a wide range of soils, as long as the drainage is decent. All along the East Coast of Australia, this tree makes a wonderful statement.
