Fabaceae-Caesalpinioideae (Caesalpiniaceae) Week: Bauhinia for ID March 2010 Pune: A large tree planted in Botanical garden Pune University.
I could observe only these few flowers on top. Shot with zoom full on.
Rest of the tree was leafless. Picture taken in end March 2010.
On close observation I think it has only one stamen per flower suggesting Bauhinia monandra.
Please validate.
Needs further investigation of this interesting tree.
March is approaching, worth visiting again and to locate some fallen flowers.
