Yes!! Love those trees. Orchid Tree. Bauhinia. That one looks like it is lacking some nutrients.

But I don't think you saw it in Texas. Did you?

I did see it in Texas, Seguin, Tx
I've seen those but not that large or purple. I believe the one I saw was white
It is in the side property of a nursery.
The flowers are beautiful
Thank you @Daisyl

BTW, I love your new avatar!!

As five stamens are visible it looks like Bauhinia x blakeana, Honk Kong Orchid Tree.

Thank y'all so much, I'll do a little research and see if I can grow it at the new place in Seguin and if so, hope it looks better than that one. The flowers are pretty but the leaves don't look very good
Thanks again
