Fragrant, orchid-like, bright fuchsia pink flowers with magenta highlights cover a graceful tree during a long period from November through March; the attractive rounded blue-green foliage is deeply cleft at the apex, giving the leaves a two-ranked appearance along the branches. This is a hybrid that occurred in Hong Kong in the 1880s; it is a cross between B. variegata and B. purpurea. It is sterile and does not form the messy seed pods of its parents – a great selling point for low-maintenance gardens!
Hong Kong orchid tree likes full sun, a rich, well-drained soil, and regular watering until new transplants are established. It works well as a stand-alone specimen but looks even better in small groups of 2-3 trees that can play off each others' architecture.
