Bauhinia variegata var. candida (Roxb.) Voigt


Description from Flora of China

Bauhinia candida Aiton, Hort. Kew. 2: 49. 1789; B. varie­gata var. alboflava de Wit.

Petals white. Staminodes ?absent. 2n = 28*.

Two of us (Larsens) note that the absence of staminodes needs to be checked on Chinese materials as this is not the case for the species in SE Asia.

The varietal name B. variegata var. candida Voigt was not based on B. candida Aiton.

● Tropical forests, also cultivated. Native in S Yunnan (Xishuang­banna); widely cultivated in S China.
