The ploegbreeker, breaker of ploughs, Erythrina zeyheri is a magnificent caudiciform species found in the summer rainfall grasslands of the South African interior. The flame orange or reddish orange flowers appear in the late spring and early summer from mid-October to mid-November. The plants often flower when the grasslands are turning brown after the winter drought or in the blackened veld after dry season grass fires.
