Bauhinia galpinii - Red Orchid Vine


Bauhinia galpinii is a gardener's dream. This shrubby vine's arching branches are covered with coral red flowers most of the year. The heart-shaped blue-green foliage is handsome on its own, and the plant is easy to grow. Give it something to climb on, trim it into a hedge or let it spill over a wall. It's always lovely.

This South-African native blooms generously through spring and summer and has flowers on it most of the year. Hardy in zones 8-11, it prefers full sun, is drought-tolerant, and is almost maintenance-free.

Hummingbirds and butterflies love the red-orange blossoms, gardeners love this hassle-free plant, and its draping form enhances most any garden.

Nick and soak the hard seeds, then plant in moist soil with good drainage and keep warm.
