Bauhinia is sometimes called orchid tree. I saw it first in early spring at Disney World, then later I saw it growing in Hawaii., where it was a much larger and more magnificent tree. I grew two plants from seed that I got from the AHS seed exchange many years ago. I keep them in pots and through the years have been forced to prune them to keep them to a size I can manage. but because of this, they are only a shadow of what they might be if they were growing in the ground.
Bahinia is a member of the Fabaceae (Bean family) and my plants usually make a  few beans every year,
which seems remarkable under the circumstances.

This is just a limb of the Bauhinia In Hawaii.
