Bauhinia racemosa Bidi Leaf Tree Seeds fragrant blooms small tropical
A dwarf variety of bauhinia with the traditional heart shaped leaves and accented by snow white orchid like blooms. Widely cultivated as an ornamental with small crooked stems making it perfect as a tropical container plant as well as a bonsaoi work of art. This semi evergreen can grow to about 15 feet or a little more, as a standard, growing more like a shrub than a tree, with branches that twist and ascend, drooping a little at the very end. Blooms between February and May.
This plant makes a most interesting deck plant and grows well as a container plant, in addition to being a specimen plant. Treat as a tropical that cannot tolerate frost.
