5b. Bauhinia variegata var. candida Voigt, Hort. Sub­urb. Calcutt. 253. 1845.

白花洋紫荆 bai hua yang zi jing

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

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

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

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.
