Description

Bauhinia bidentata is a large climber and it climbs with the aid of tendrils. The simple, shallowly bifid leaves are organized alternately along the stem. The young leaves are red in colour, turning green as it matures. The upper leaf surface is glabrous, the lower leaf surface is covered with a layer of hairs. The young branches are tomentose and turn glabrous as they develop. The bisexual flowers are borne on a corymbose inflorescence. A layer of hairs cover the axis and buds. The flower petals are yellow and turn red as they mature. The fruits are in the form of glabrous pods.

Bauhinia bidentata is one of the common wayside species. It can simply be distinguished by the orange red coloured flowers. It can be found especially along the North-East highway. This species can grow up to 30 cm in DBH, making it among the largest lianas recorded and frequently caused the host to fall by its heavy weight.
