  Sea Almond (leaves)

 

Myanmar

The Sea Almond is known in Thai as ton hoo kwahng, which means ‘deer ears tree’, a name that derives from the tree's leaves, which shape is reminiscent of the ears of deer (fig.). Since the dense foliage and rather large size of the leaves provide plenty of shade, the Sea Almond is often planted at roadsides (fig.).
