Tropical Tree/Shrub ID: Bauhinia
My first time coming across Bauhinia, a tropical tree growing outside of where we were staying in St. Lucia. The fragrance of this guy, commonly called an orchid tree, was so rich and pungent in the evening air it would stop you dead in your tracks. Thanks to Charles Y. for helping me ID this one.
