    Description

Bauhinia purpurea - The Orchid Tree

This listing is for 10 seeds of Bauhinia purpurea.

This is a small flowering tree from South East Asia, grown for its ornamental and medicinal values. It grows up to 5 metres tall with a similar spread and is as like to be a bushy shrub as it is a tree - depending upon how it has been cultivated.  It has a large number of common names including Hong Kong Orchid tree, Purple Bauhinia, Camel's Foot, Butterfly Tree and Hawaiian Orchid Tree.

It produces stunning orchid like pink/purple flowers throughout the spring and summer, which are quite fragrant. These are followed by flattened seedpods containing 12- 16 seeds.  Even when not in flower, the shrub/tree has attractive lobed leaves characteristic of all Bauhinia species.

Hardy to Zone 9 it is tolerant of light frosts. In habitat it is subjected to temperatures ranging from just below freezing to over 50 Degree Celsius.
  Also makes a stunning bonsai tree and training can start in the first year from seed, so ideal for those impatient to see the results of their efforts.

Very easy from seed, the germination rates are very high for this species, providing the seed coat is 'damaged' to allow the seed to take on water.  Full growing instructions can be downloaded via this link - Growing Instructions
