Pink Bauhinia – Bauhinia monandra

I already have a post on the Purple Bauhinia.  But the sight of the pink bauhinia tree was so beautiful to behold, that I had to post the pictures here again.

The tree is popularly called the Orchid tree, Pink Bauhinia, Butterfly Tree and even the Napolean’s Plume.

Beautiful, right? Too beautiful a sight to skip.

I managed to get the pictures before the sky opened up and it started pouring.  Taken at Hitex Convention Centre, Hyderabad.

A deciduous tree – meaning the plant loses its leaves in winter. 

For anyone who just might want to learn more about flora , hop over to http://flowersofindia.net.   A beautifully compiled site. With terms explained in a simple manner.  I identify most trees and flowers over here.
