Bauhinia tomentosa is usually a rambling, many-stemmed shrub or small tree. It grows upto 4 - 8 metres tall. The branches are often drooping, with many slender twigs. The plant is harvested from the wild as a source of food and medicines. It is also sometimes grown as a hedge and as an ornamental plant. Since the root system is not aggressive, it can be planted close to swimming pools, drains or paving.
