Bauhinia coccinea - Plant
Is quite a finicky grower. Looks spectacular when in bloom. Sets seed at the begnning of the winter season. The young seedlings do not like it cold. The plant prefers good soil and warm and humid growing conditions. Soils should be rich in manure and well drained. Get one if you can! Is really pretty. Another very important aspect is that the plants require acidic soils. Do not plant in alkaline soils as the plants will develop severe iron deficiency and even die. Can be grown in pots as well.
