Bauhinia galpinii is a species of shrub in the family Fabaceae. It is endemic to parts of Eastern and Southern Africa, where its popular name is "Pride of De Kaap". In other places however, it is variously known as Orchid Tree, Red Bauhinia, Nasturtium Bauhinia, African Plume, Red Orchid Bush, and by other informal names. The species name commemorates E. E. Galpin.
