Cow Paw – Scientifically named “Bauhinia forficata”, the Cow Paw is an ornamental tree commonly used in landscaping decoration in urban areas. The term “Pata de Vaca” is associated with the “v” shape of its leaves, which resemble the shape of the feet of cows and oxen (animals). The Cow Paw belongs to the genus “Bauhinia” named after the botanist brothers Jean Bauhin and Gaspard Bauhin. There are 300 species of this genus, of which about 200 are in Brazil in the Atlantic Rainforest.

Some parts of the Cow Paw are used for different purposes. From the use of wood as a source of energy, the leaves, and flowers of this plant are used as food for animals and introduced in the production of natural medications. “Bauhinia forficata” is the only species of this genus that produces white flowers. This species is known for its rounded, fragrant flowers that develop between July and September. During the flowering season, the Pata de Vaca is invaded by hummingbirds and bees. This medium-sized tree is one of the most important species in the regeneration of degraded areas.
