This curious plant grows in sand or sand-mix with lots of water and sun. The stem will reach for up to 60Ft, and the flowers are white. It can be reproduced by seeds. What seems to be a caudex is just the large nut which will disappear by time. In habitat it is a large tree that grows on sandy and rocky shores, it has large leaves held in rosettes at the ends of branches. The young leaves are a beautiful bronze with pinkish veins. Old leaves turn yellowish. The flowers are delightful puff balls of white stamens tipped with pink. They open at night and attract large moths and nectar-feeding bats with their heavy scent. The next morning, the flower stamens are usually found strewn beneath the tree. The fruits have a typical lantern shape and float on the water. The fruit can survive drifting on the sea for long distances and for periods of up to 2 years. They were among the first seeds to arrive on the island of Krakatau when it first emerged out of the sea. The outermost layer of the fruit wall is green turning brown when ripe. The middle layer is spongy and contains air sacs to help the fruit float. The innermost layer is hard and thick to protect the seed (the layers of spongy and hard coverings are somewhat similar to the coconut). All parts of the tree contain saponin, a poison. The seeds and other parts of the plant are pounded, pulped or grated to release the poison and used to stun fish in freshwater streams. The floating seeds are sometimes used as fishing floats. A colorful shady tree, it is commonly planted as a roadside tree. The heated leaves are used to treat stomach ache and rheumatism (Philippines); seeds are used to get rid of intestinal worms.

Bauhinia grandidieri, Dwarf Orchid Tree, Dwarf Blue Orchid Tree 

Click to see full-size image Bauhinia grandidieri
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Dwarf Orchid Tree, Dwarf Blue Orchid Tree
Origin: Caribbean islands
Can be used for bonsaiSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsBlue/lavender/purple flowers

Very rare dwarf bauhinia, great for bonsai. It may be as well trained along an espalier, for an interesting effect. Grows 2-4 ft tall and 10 ft wide. Very tiny leaves and blueish-purple orchid-like flowers. Use it in a sunny, well-drained spot in alkaline soil, and it should always look nice.

See article about bauhinias.

Bauhinia hookerii, Lysiphyllum hookerii, Mountain Ebony, Pegunny, White bauhinia

Click to see full-size image Bauhinia hookerii, Lysiphyllum hookerii
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Mountain Ebony, Pegunny, White bauhinia
Origin: Northeastern Australia
Can be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Medium tree with large spreading crown and white flowers, edged in pink and deep pink or red stamens. Bifid leaves are small. Prefers full sun places. Drought tolerant once established. Slow growing when small. Seeds need to soak in several changes of very warm water before planting. Germination takes 14 to 45 days at 85oF (30oC). Makes a good container specimen or bonsai. Due to its small leaves, multi-branching habit and a slow growth rate even a young seedling looks like a miniature tree. Bonsai plants do not require much shaping since this bauhinia naturally shaped as bonsai.

See picture of flower.
