This tree is known for its large, showy, pink flowers, which resemble orchids and bloom prolifically during the warm months of the year. The flowers typically have five petals and a prominent central stamen, giving them an orchid-like appearance. The foliage consists of distinctive, bilobed leaves that resemble the shape of a butterfly or a pair of ears, which is a characteristic feature of the Bauhinia genus.

Growing Instructions

 

The seeds have a hard seed coat that has to be treated, or scarified, in order for water to enter the seeds so that they can sprout.

  2. Soak the seed in water for 24 hours.

  4. Put the seeds on the soil.
  5. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil.
  6. Water the seeds.
  7. Place the pots in an area with warm temperatures in full sun or part shade.
  8. When the seedlings are a few inches tall, they can be transplanted.
