A Bauhina monandra also known as a Hong kong orchid tree is a 6 to 12 meter tree that is fast growing. The tree then starts growing pink/white flowers at 3-4 years old. The habitat most suited for the tree would be a sunny position with well drained soil. The Bauhinia monandra is native to Madagascar but has now started to grow in Burma, Australia, Christmas Island, The Caribbeans, South USA and the Pacific Islands.
We are very pedantic with our trees. We only grow trees that we know will survive in our local area. Most seed stock is sourced in FNQ and grown under stringent guidelines. We have resident Horticulturalists here to answer any questions you may have about this tree or any others that we grow here at nqtrees.
