Bauhinia blakeana, the Hong Kong orchid tree, is an accidental hybrid between Bauhinia purpurea and Bauhinia variegata and was discovered for the first time at a seashore in 1880 on the peninsula of Hong Kong. This big bush or small tree (approx. 10 meters tall) with an unstructured shape quickly became very popular in small gardens and public spaces all around the tropical world for its uncommon orchid style pink flowers. It actually also became the emblem of Hong Kong.
