|Flower of Ceylon Ironwood|
Common Name: Ceylon Ironwood
Scientific Name: Mesua ferrea
Assamese Name: Naahor
The entrance stretch of the university where Deta (my father) worked, is lined by Ceylon Ironwood trees on the both sides. I have seen these trees almost everyday of the time we stayed in the university campus. The trees are a beauty in spring when new leaves, reddish and light green in colour, covers the whole tree. The flower is white in colour with a yellow centre.

One thought on “C for "Ceylon Iron Wood"”
What a striking contrast that white and yellow is to the red and green. Beautiful!Best Wishes!Lori My A2Zs @ As the Fates Would Have It & Promptly Written Follow Me (Ravyne) Twitter|Facebook
