Common name:
Pink Bauhinia



This little-known orchid tree produces remarkable, pale pink flowers which have a single yellow petal full of red-purple spots. It’s a tropical brush that is native to Madagascar. However, scientists assumed for a long time that the species originated from Birma. In a temperate climate, the plant can be kept as a houseplant in a sunny spot. In addition, the leaves are extraordinary pretty in the shape of a hoof print or butterfly. During dry periods, the plant loses its leaves. In the tropics, it’s an invasive species that already has caused a lot of problems in Australia. That’s why you can’t cultivate this species in tropical regions.
