Scientific Name : Bauhinia variegate
Native to the South China area, it is a deciduous tree in the family Caesalpiniaceae with a height up to 15 metres, bearing violet or paler flowers that have conspicuous dark purple and yellowish-green strips on upper petals. Camel's Foot Tree blossoms in March with gorgeous flowers and a light fragrance, usually reaching full bloom before the emergence of new foliage. The blooming flowers dye the tree crown pink, helping create pleasant views comparable to those of Cherry blossoms and hence making them highly popular among flower lovers. It is commonly used in roadside and garden landscaping projects.
