Hello friends,
 
Can you me some idea of this mangrove plant - the green leaves are turning to striking red-orange (hope it is not the other way round).
 
Place: Vaghbil near Vasai creek, Thane
Date: 27 JUN 09
 
Regards.

I would not know the name of the mangrove, however, you are right the
green leaves are turning yellow just before it falls. Soon you should
see new tender leaves on them.

Yazdy.

Many thanks Satish ji and Dhiren ji for the IDs.
I am convinced, my plant is Excoecaria agallocha ... Dhiren ji, requesting you to comment, if think otherwise.
 
Regards.
