This plant is growing outside of my vets and I do not know what it is. Any ideas?
How tall is it?
What sort of habit does it have - shrubby, herbaceous?
Is it flowering now?
It's something from the pea family by the looks of things, but I'm not quite sure what at the moment.
Ring your vet and see if they know. It looks quite tender.
It looks sort of beany.
Have a look at Heliconia, the Lobster Claw plant, maybe one of those...
Not Heliconia, I don't think, Marlorena - definately something from the pea family.
Looks like Erythrina sp.

Looks like you are right, Silver surfer.
Never seen this plant before and after reading about it, don't think it would survive in the climate where I live - unfortunate because it looks lovely.
Well done for solving that mystery!
