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.
