in preparation to recieve rains many deciduos trees are showing new leaf. even though it is blisteringly hot, shiny red leaves which quickly turn green have started appearing.

Hi Mohina,

   Have a sneaking suspicion that the aberrant appearance of new leaves has more to do with over-watering of your plants by over-enthusiastic farmhands than any drastic climatic changes. Please check. Have encountered the same with my saplings but not with the established trees.

Hi Neil and Joshi Pankaj
It is possible, but only the newly planted saplings are watered
I don't have an older dellinia pentagyna, but most older other trees, which are definitely not watered, are showing new leaf.
In any case I dont have any observations from earlier years, so it is not possible to make comparisons.
