Bauhinia variegata - Variegated Orchid Tree

Bauhinia variegata - Variegated Orchid Tree (Bauhinia variegata - Variegated Orchid Tree)

Many species of orchids trees grow here. There's always an orchid tree in bloom here everyday of the year. Variegated orchid tree blooms in early spring then will produce thousands of seed pods then will go dormant for a month or so. This tree can become very weedy because of all the seeds.
