Do you have a list of favorite plants?  I do.  Mine is made up of about 12 plants, and they change from time to time.

One of my recent additions to my favorites list is anacacho orchid (Bauhinia lunarioides).



This lovely plant can be trained as a small tree or a large shrub.


Fragrant white flowers appear in spring, and the foliage adds beauty throughout the year.


While I don’t have this plant in my landscape, yet – I have been using it in a few of my latest designs.

If you would like to learn more about this beautiful plant, I invite you to read my latest plant profile for Houzz.



How about you?  Have you ever seen or grown an anacacho orchid?

    Hi Noelle ~ I've not seen your particular orchid tree, but do have Bauhinia acuminata that I grew from seed, growing in a large terra cotta pot. I love it and the scent is so sweet and flowers really pretty.

    Happy Gardening ~ FlowerLady

    what a beautiful bush. I don't think I've seen one. I have many favorites but this time of year I love it when the dogwoods are blooming, the daffodils, tulips and lilac trees. I also love succulants and the blooming cactuses.
