Die Vlam-van-die-vlakte (Bauhinia galpinii) is ’n struik wat ook as ’n klein boompie voorkom. Dit kom ook voor as ’n klimplant. Die plant is so gewild as ’n tuinplant dat die natuurlike verspreiding daarvan onduidelik is. Common names: Pride of De Kaap; Vlam-van-die-Vlakte.
Family : Fabaceae

As the name suggests, anyone could be forgiven for thinking that this plant comes from the Cape. In actual fact it is named after the De Kaap valley, south of Nelspruit in Mpumalanga in the northeastern region of South Africa. It is much more widespread, however, and can be found right across the moister bushveld areas of the country. More info
