Orchid Tree or Mountain Ebony (Bauhinia variegata)

This flowering plant is called “Siao Dok Kao” in northern Thai dialect. If the color of the flowers is red, it is called “Siao Dok Dang.” Propagated by seed, this very popular ornamental tree grows to a height of up to 15 meters in the mixed, deciduous forests of northern Thailand, and bears eye-catching, white flowers from November to March. It is found throughout Chiang Rai province, especially in Doi Tung and Phu Chi Fah areas where, due to the very dry and cool weather, the plants will have no leaves on their stems in winter when they produce the beautiful, fragrant flowers. Local people eat the young flowers with chili paste, and cook the young leaves with dried fish to make northern Thai curry.
