I took this Shrub picture in Bhojwasa, Uttarakhand. I saw three
different places similar plant on the road side, vertical portion. My
observation is that only one leaf which is almost touching the surface
is red in colour in all three plants. It interested me.

Tt is a herbaceous plant and not shrub, a Geranium species, probably G. nepalense. The leaf must be the oldest (lowermost leaf on the plant which is perishing and losing colour.
