Hanoi’s 'loc vung' (Barringtonia acutangula) trees have started changing leaf colour from red to yellow, making the city's streets more beautiful.


Loc Vung trees are grown in many streets in Hanoi. Unlike the other kinds of trees whose leaves change in Autumn, loc vung trees shed their leaves in Spring.

Loc Vung is a popular tree kind planted in Vietnamese households as it represents luck and wealth and is well regarded by those that practice Feng Shui.
