Singapore’s Prettiest Trees

One of the prettiest trees in Singapore is the one with dark branches and yellowish green leaves. I still don’t know what these trees are called, but they don’t seem tropical to me. I have nothing against tropical, but we always yearn for what we don’t get.

    hi there! I literally stumbled upon your blog when I googled Yong Siak Street and happened to see your post on Singapore’s Prettiest Trees. Anyway I often wonder about these trees too and always marvel at how unreal they look, especially after the rain. I asked my dad and he told me they are Flame of the Forest. I’m still not sure because the leaves on FOTF are supposed to turn red and/or orange. But perhaps they are distant relatives?
