This unusual Bauhinia has a single "fused" leaf structure, unlike most bauhinias with a split "camel-foot" shaped leaves.
It has pendant flowers coming in groups, of very pretty pink and yellow combination color, resembling Fuchsia or Lonicera flowers. Buds are pink, thick, cylindrical, shaped like a cow tong, hence the common name.
Grows into a small tree or a large bush. Great for small yards that welcome butterflies and humming birds.
