PACKAGE OF 10 SEEDS, the seeds were took this season, We have a lot of extremely rare plants if you want something rare let me know and I will listing for you. Questions? feel free to email me.Bauhinia galpinii is a species of shrub in the family Fabaceae. It is endemic to parts of Eastern and Southern Africa, where its popular name is “Pride of De Kaap”. In other places however, it is variously known as Orchid Tree, Red Bauhinia, Nasturtium Bauhinia, African Plume, Red Orchid Bush, and by other informal names. The leaves are bilobed, each having a symmetrical pair of rounded lobes joined symmetrically about a midrib, with a small, soft mucronule in the notch at the tip. The resulting shape gave rise to the Afrikaans popular name “kameelpoot”, meaning “camel’s foot”. The mucronule is fragile and frequently is missing as a result of minor damage. The flowers in the wild generally are a handsome brick red. RECOMMENDATIONS: Fill a 4-inch diameter pot with 1 part garden soil, 1 part sand and 1 part peat moss. Place the seed 1/4 inch deep in the soil and cover. Place the pot in a warm location with temperatures of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and indirect sunlight. Water the soil. Keep the soil moist until you see a sprout.Germination takes about 6 to 8 weeks. Keep soil moist, but not soggy. Hardiness: USDA Zone 9a: to -6.6 °C (20 °F) USDA Zone 9b: to -3.8 °C (25 °F) USDA Zone 10a: to -1.1 °C (30 °F) USDA Zone 10b: to 1.7 °C (35 °F) USDA Zone 11: above 4.5 °C (40 °F)
