    Description

Bauhinia racemosa - Bidi Leaf Tree

This listing is for 10 seeds of Bauhinia racemosa.

This is a small flowering tree from South East Asia, which has both religious and cultural significance in India.  It is used in some Hindu festivals where it is known as leaves of gold and its common name refers to a particular type of cigarette produced in India (the Bidi or Beedi) and it was this leaf that was originally used as a 'wrapper'.  It is also used in traditional medicine.

It produces stunning orchid like white flowers throughout the spring and summer, these are followed by flattened seedpods containing 4 - 11 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
