Bauhinia blakeana, Hong Kong Orchid Tree

Click to see full-size image Bauhinia blakeana
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Hong Kong Orchid Tree
Origin: Hong Kong
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The most beautiful orchid tree. The tree was originally described as a new species in 1908 after being discovered on the near Hong Kong around 1880 and was named after a Hong Kong governor Sir Henry Blake who had a strong interest in botany. The tree is of medium size with alternate large heart shaped leaves. Large deep-purple flowers appears from January to May. The beautiful display of slightly fragrant orchid-like blooms makes the tree so desirable for the landscape. The flowers attract butterflies and bees. The species is believed to be sterile and will not set seed so the plant will not drop long pods as other orchid trees do. The flower of Bauhinia blakeana was adopted as the emblem of Hong Kong in 1965.

Bauhinia bowkeri, Kei White Bauhinia, Bowker's Bauhinia, Keibeesklou

Click to see full-size image Bauhinia bowkeri
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Kei White Bauhinia, Bowker's Bauhinia, Keibeesklou
Origin: South Africa
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Bauhinia bowkeri is a much-branched, scrambling, woody shrub with a graceful arching habit that can reach a height of 5-6 m. The bark is greyish-brown. The leaves, like all South African bauhinias, are distinctively butterfly-like and consist of two rounded, nearly semi-circular lobes fused along the inner margins as if on a hinge.

Bauhinia bowkeri is a rare endemic of the thicket or valley bushveld region in the Eastern Cape. The soil is fertile and the climate is hot. Frost is rare, but mild if it does occur. Rainfall is mainly during the warmer summer months, ranging between 800 - 1250 mm per annum, and winters are dry.

See picture.
