Dear all,
Some days ago I had posted B. sp. for the confirmation, but unfortunately shots were not too good or clear. I am posting closeups and detailed photoes of Bauhinia. it is having three stamens with bilobed stigma. All the petals are clearly white but a fine line of pink tinge is there on the middle petal which is equal to nothing. Calyx devided into three parts after the flowering and not the spoon like.
Please try to elaborate this Bauhinia, Is it B.purpurea again?

Dear Dr. Kadus, this is Bauhinia variegata commonly known as White orchid tree.

Regards,

Mani.

Arvind--

 Certainly appears to be B. purpurea-- non-overlapping petals and three stamens. I've not seen one so colored before. Thanks for posting.

Regards--
Ken.

Dear Mani ... the petals of mountain ebony Bauhinia variegata are quite broad and close to each other, tending to overlap, compared to narrow and open petals of B. purpurea.

The Mountain Ebony flower (Hindi: कंचनार) is the State Flower of Bihar.

Regards.

Dear all,
Thank you for the ID of Bauhinia.
Further like to collect the colourful world of Bauhinias because B.
pupurea is having different and different colours, then what is about
others? Let us do something different.
Thanks again.
