The problem in raising this tree (Bauhinia X Blakeana)  is that one is not sure whether or not it is the same variety. Nurseries often palm off variegaata or acuminata in its place. Anyway now I have it. The other challenge is to convert this bushy tree into a shapely one!

I am repeating this in response to the mail by Mr. Garg in this regard.
Another special point I forgot to mention last time is that this flower was discovered in Hongkong and as it is a cross, only vegetative propagation is possible. So like Bodhi Vriksha all the trees have been developed from a single plant. This is the national (!) flower of Hongkong.

If I was allowed to nominate two Flower pictures of the year, this one would have been my second one. I had posted this plant from Herbal Garden plant, and simply love it for its beauty and unique story of origin. Here is link to my upload:

Thanks Anand ji for replying..
I have taken photographs which were sent in the mails with the said subject line. As you might observe this is the thread from which I have taken your photograph. Anyway now I will add your other pictures too.
