Just for fun... It's raining a lot outside, bringing some cold.

Orchids on trees! No, it's Bauhinia.

 

The Bauhinia Tree is also called the Orchid Tree. Imagine looking out your back door and seeing a tree simply covered with these glorious blossoms!

 

I love the delicate creamy stamens on their rosy filaments and the play of light and shadow they create on the pink and rose veins of its petals.

Bauhinia is a genus of more than 500 species of flowering plants in the subfamily Cercidoideae and tribe Bauhinieae, in the large flowering plant family Fabaceae, with a pantropical distribution. Many species are widely planted in the tropics as orchid trees, particularly in India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and southeastern China. Bauhinia trees typically reach a height of 6–12 m and their branches spread 3–6 m outwards. The lobed leaves usually are 10–15 cm across. The five-petaled flowers are 7.5–12.5 cm diameter, generally in shades of red, pink, purple, orange, or yellow, and are often fragrant. The tree begins flowering in late winter and often continues to flower into early summer. Depending on the species, Bauhinia flowers are usually in magenta, mauve, pink or white hues with crimson highlights. 44510

Bauhinia Purpurea 紅花羊蹄甲,指纖映紅霞

This is a hybrid between Bauhinia variegata and Bauhinia purpurea. It has large thick leaves and striking purplish red flowers. The fragrant, orchid-like flowers are usually 10 to 15 centimetres (3.9 to 5.9 in) across, and bloom from early November to the end of March. It is sterile, which means it does not generally produce seeds or fruits. Although now cultivated in many areas, it originated in Hong Kong.

My new favorite tree. Flowers are ~5 in. (12cm) across! The parent species were probably B. variegata & B. purpurea, both from eastern & southeastern Asia. The hybrid is grown in southern California where temperatures rarely reach freezing. Despite the unusual flower, this genus is in the pea family, the Fabaceae.

Bauhinia × blakeana cross), commonly called the Hong Kong orchid tree, is a hybrid leguminous tree of the genus Bauhinia. It has large thick leaves and striking purplish red flowers. The fragrant, orchid-like flowers are usually 10 to 15 centimetres (3.9 to 5.9 in) across, and bloom from early November to the end of March.

 

Although now cultivated in many areas, it originated in Hong Kong in 1880 and apparently all of the cultivated trees derive from one cultivated at the Hong Kong Botanical Gardens and widely planted in Hong Kong starting in 1914. It is referred to as bauhinia in non-scientific literature though this is the name of the genus. It is sometimes called the Hong Kong orchid.

 

In the United States of America, the tree grows in Hawaii, coastal California, southern Texas, and southwest Florida.

Bauhinia x blakeana

I think this is a bloom on a Bauhinia Tree.

They bloom around here in the spring, and look like an Orchid.

Probably everyone in Florida knows the name of this amazing flower but me...

---I'm still checking :)

 

Also called an Orchid tree, thanks to jciv and Margaret Jones :)

The Bauhinia or Hong Kong Orchid tree always delights me with it's neatly-folded emerging new leaves which open more and more as they enlarge. Such an architecturally delightful and unusual style!

 

Look closely for the tiny light green ones that are a lighter green!

Bauhinia Purpurea, Hong Kong Orchid Tree

Appelé aussi Arbre d'orchidée bien que n'appartenant pas à la famille Orchidaceae

Australian native Dragonfly, possibly Inland Hunter (Austrogomphus australis) perched very high on a Bauhinia twig.

Not the best shot, I know, but I was using my Sigma 600 handheld whilst aiming very high...not enough time for a tripod.

Hulhumalé is an artifical island just north of Malé and its airport on Huhulé. Three bridges and causeways connect the three islands, and it's all something of a metropolis. Hulhumalé was inaugurated only about fifteen years ago (2004), and already it's become a 'sleeper' town for Malé. Moreover, the long, exquisite eastern beach is drawing tourists who don't want to pay the 1000 euros (!) a night and more for one of those resort islands. But it's a far from busy place and quite pleasant. Urban planners have also given space to greenery and to some parks.

Here's a flamboyantly purple Orchid Tree, Bauhinia purpurea. It's less than 15 years old but already its blossom-laden branches bend deeply over the pond by which it stands. Delightful.
