Introducing the stunning and unique Bauhinia vahlii, also known as the Malu (Maloo) creeper and Camel's Foot Climber. This perennial creeper, native to the Indian subcontinent and found across India and Pakistan, is a member of the Caesalpiniaceae family. Its branches are densely hairy, and its large leaves are orbicular in shape, sparsely hairy on the upper side, and densely hairy on the lower side. The inflorescence is terminal and produces a densely hairy raceme with white flowers that turn buff with age. What sets the Bauhinia vahlii apart is the fact that its roasted seeds are edible, making it both a decorative and functional addition to any garden or landscape. Additionally, the foliage is used as fodder, while the bark yields good fibers for ropes, and the seeds have medicinal properties known for their tonic and aphrodisiac traits. Don't miss your chance to add this fascinating plant to your collection today!
