Description

Bauhinia variegata is an unusual exotic tree most frequently grown as a multi-stemmed shrub. It has large leaves which are two lobed and resemble butterfly wings. From late winter to summer it bears stunning, bright pink, orchid-like flowers which are sweetly fragrant. These are followed by long, bean-like pods.

Native to India and China this tender plant is ideal for growing in a conservatory or in a pot on a sunny patio which is brought into the greenhouse for winter. It can be pruned to any size. Height: 8m (26’). Spread: 3m (10’).

Sowing
Prior to sowing, soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours until they have at least doubled in size. Sow into individual modules or pots in a gritty, free draining compost and cover thinly. Keep at 20-25 degrees. Seeds may take 4-6 weeks or longer to germinate. After germination transplant them into root trainers to avoid disturbing the tap root.
More Info
Grow on in containers in a greenhouse or conservatory. Plants can be brought outside during the summer.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
