Roxburgh's Bauhinia

Bauhinia roxburghiana: At Agharkar Institute
 Delicate and small off-white flower splashed with magenta purple. Found this by chance on one of my exploratory trips. Aptly known as Shweta kanchan in Marathi, this species of Bauhinia is very different from the usual large flowers that range from gaudy  pink to a light lavender.
