Last week I had visited to Jijamata Udyan (Rani bagh) in Byculla,Mumbai.
Found this elegant tree with dazzling pink coloured leaves at the end
of branches. Didn't know who it was. Yesterday discovered through a
book (Pradeep Krishen's Tree of Delhi) that it was Mesua Ferrea aka
Nagkesar aka Ironwood.
The book says that these are new leaves which begin as crimson red,
turn pink and finally become green.
I hope I am right in assuming that it is Mesua Ferrea?
