The Pride of Burma, also known as the Orchid Tree or Bauhinia purpurea, is a striking and ornamental deciduous tree belonging to the Fabaceae family. Native to Southeast Asia, including Burma (Myanmar), Thailand, and Malaysia, it is widely cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions for its beautiful flowers and attractive foliage. Here is a description of the Pride of Burma or Orchid Tree:

  1. Size and Shape: The Pride of Burma is a medium to large-sized tree that can reach heights of 6 to 12 meters (20 to 40 feet) or more. It has a rounded to spreading crown with dense and lush foliage.

  2. Leaves: The leaves of the Orchid Tree are distinctive and unique in shape. Each leaf is bilobed, meaning it is divided into two lobes, resembling the shape of a butterfly or a heart. The glossy green leaves are large and add to the tree's ornamental appeal.

  3. Flowers: One of the most outstanding features of the Pride of Burma is its exquisite flowers. The blossoms are large and showy, measuring around 8-15 cm (3-6 inches) in diameter. They are typically a striking shade of purplish-pink or mauve, resembling the color of some orchid species, hence the common name "Orchid Tree." The flowers are arranged in clusters or racemes and bloom abundantly during the warm months.

  4. Bark: The bark of Bauhinia purpurea is grayish-brown and becomes rougher with age, forming fissures and ridges.

  5. Fruits and Seeds: After flowering, the tree produces elongated seed pods that contain numerous seeds. The pods are initially green and turn brown as they mature.
