2-3" wide reddish orange to brick-red orchid-like blossoms are produced in clusters from summer and into fall are held against the blue-green bi-lobed foliage. The Red Orchid Tree is a naturally sprawling medium to large evergreen to deciduous tropical shrub and can easily be trained into a small tree, pruned into a shrub form, or even as a vine over a small arbor in mild winter climates. This beautiful Bauhinia can also be enjoyed as a container plant or espalier. The flowers attract a variety of pollinators including butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. A South African species, Pride of de Kaap is drought resistant once well established but will flower best with average moisture, a well-drained, fertile soil, and full sunlight. Wind tolerant as well. Item# 11012
