Nice size for a plant the internet says is a dwarf. I see a rating down to 9b,but I am dubious about that.

Yes, it's most likely about 8 ft tall. It has tons of flowers. It was developing a lot of seed pods. I took some from my this plant. I'll see if it grows. I'm not sure what its hardiness is, though.

Most Bauhinia species will tolerate some brief freezing temps. If it's prolonged it will cause some damage; however, they recover pretty quickly. Many hours of freezing along with days of freezing temps they cannot tolerate without dying.
