Indian Beech

Millettia pinnata

Description:

A legume tree that grows to about 15–25 meters (15–80 ft) in height with a large canopy which spreads equally wide. It may be deciduous for short periods. The leaves are a soft, shiny burgundy in early summer and mature to a glossy, deep green as the season progresses. Flowering starts in general after 3–4 years. Cropping of pods and single almond sized seeds can occur by 4–6 years. Small clusters of white, purple, and pink flowers blossom on their branches throughout the year, maturing into brown seed pods.

Welcome Cherrey... This great tree is grown right opposite to my gallery. Many sweet birds are visiting there.. I have spotted cute Tailorbird on it during its leafless season... Now unable to spot it as it had dense leafs on it....

I have done that before I asked you, coz I can't find a similarity. I was expecting to see the same coloration among the results..
