  Sea Almond (leaves)

 

Thailand

Fresh Sea Almond's leaves leaves are of a lemon green colour (fig.), but as they mature they turn dark green and after that even red. In Thai, the tree is known as ton hoo kwahng, which means ‘deer ears tree’, a name that derives from the shape of the tree's leaves.
