Bauhinia monandra, Orchid tree, Napoleon's plume

Click to see full-size image Bauhinia monandra
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Orchid tree, Napoleon's plume
Origin: Tropical America
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunDry conditionsPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Nice landscape tree, good shade tree for summer. Bauhinias were named in honor of the brothers Bauhin, Swiss botanists of the 16th-17th century. Their characteristic twin lobed leaves give them a definite tropical look. The species name 'monandra' refers to the fact that they have only one stamen. Sensitive to chlorosis, treat with iron chelate. Although not generally necessary, they can be pruned after flowering. The blossom is spectacular, the tree is covered of flowers looking like orchids. Flower will start out as a pale yellow but turn to pink the next day with the center petal streaked with magenta. Bauhinia monandra is used in Brazil for the treatment of diabetes.

Click to see full-size image Bauhinia tomentosa
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Yellow Orchid Tree, Yellow Bell Bauhinia, St. Thomas Tree

Can be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeDry conditionsWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersDeciduousSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Not fussy about soil. Pale yellow flowers facing downward. Nice specimen tree for the small yard. The bell-shaped yellow flowers have a black marking in the throat and may turn pinkish with age. Leaves smell like burned rubber when rubbed. This vigorous shrub or small tree is suitable for a mixed border or rockery. Plant in well-drained soil. Protect young plants from frost. Prune to keep in shape. A food supplement - Kachnar - is made out of this plant as a gargle for sore throats, as a paste for skin diseases, or internally as a remedy for diarrhea.
