Native to the savannas of South Africa, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe, the Bauhinia galpinii is low growing and typically gets wider faster than it gets taller. This hard to find shrub has perfect butterfly shaped leaves that gently contrast the graceful spiraling stems and can easily be kept a desirable size with pruning. This plant does well as a container specimen and is bound to be the conversation piece in even the most exciting collections.

This is a temporary addition and may not be restocked once sold out.
