BAUHINIA GALPINII
Red Orchid Tree
African Plume

One of the Orchid Tree species with brick red, orchid like flowers and notched leaves shaped like hooves. B. galpinii if let alone grows like scandent shrub forming round mounds but it can be
shaped in different ways to your liking. I have seen plants trimmed as small tree with a very
oriental look, plants growing over fences, plants on trellises. Trimming should be done when the plants are waking up at the beginning of spring.

Quick Facts:
-requires little maintenance once established
-attracts butterflies
-it can loose most of its leaves during the winter
