 Bauhinia hookerii, Lysiphyllum hookerii
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Mountain Ebony, Pegunny, White bauhinia
Origin: Northeastern Australia
Can be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Medium tree with large spreading crown and white flowers, edged in pink and deep pink or red stamens. Bifid leaves are small. Prefers full sun places. Drought tolerant once established. Slow growing when small. Seeds need to soak in several changes of very warm water before planting. Germination takes 14 to 45 days at 85oF (30oC). Makes a good container specimen or bonsai. Due to its small leaves, multi-branching habit and a slow growth rate even a young seedling looks like a miniature tree. Bonsai plants do not require much shaping since this bauhinia naturally shaped as bonsai.

This tree is growing as a street tree, in downtown Honolulu, and the tree's habit of growth, is that of a natural bonsai- it is awesome, to see the natural character of growth, of a perfect bonsai, in each tree! I have five seedlings on my lanai, and they have a beautiful, graceful, delicate, weeping effect, similar to a delicate fern. They will make beautiful bonsai specimens!
