The adorable elegant flowers of Bauhinia yunnanensis. Pretty, evergreen vine climbing by tendrils with dainty, bilobed leaves and clusters of lavender-pink, orchid-like flowers over long spring-fall season, displayed for a long period. It is a delicate, small-leaved but vigorous vine, adaptable to sun or light shade, and tolerates drought and light frost (zone 9). It has the characteristic Bauhinia butterfly leaves. A fine texture vine.
The pale pink flowers with dark veining are abundant from spring to autumn and are complimented by the purple tinged new growth. It is perfect for covering a pergola, fence or over a tree and is spectacular as a ground cover especially when in flower.
