SpecificationsA small evergreen tree, Bauhinia variegata alba has an open upright growth habit and bears striking creamy-white flowers which are very orchid-like in appearance with a beautiful aromatic fragrance. This variety flowers in spring and intermittently in summer, followed by flattened brown seed pods. Bauhinias all have the characteristic 2-lobed leaves which when combined with the decorative flowers makes for a very decorative addition to any garden. Bauhinias are highly suitable as a display feature. They like full sun, a warmer climate, and a light well-drained fertile soil suits them best. Water well until established but then they are reasonably drought tolerant. Pruning is not usually neccessary although vigerous growth can be thinned after flowering, otherwise minimal or little maintenance is required. Bauhinia purpurea can grow 4.5 to 8 m and will eventually have a reasonable spread to 6m.
