Posted earlier, Photinia suggested by …
Ornamental plant seen in Sept, 2011.
No please, it is Black cherry plum Prunus cerasifera ‘Nigra’ commonly grown as ornamental tree.
Ornamental for ID : Srinagar : 070512 : AK-1: A small ornamental, cultivated garden tree/shrub.
Seen in the gardens of Srinagar on the 10th of Sept,12.
Purplish brown leaves, no flowers or fruits when picture was taken.
Height of the tree/shrub around 5 feet.
perhaps a coleus ?
The margin has been on my mind, not coleus…
I imagine if this can be some Rosaceae, Photinia sp.
The leaves did look exactly like the Rose leaf…only they were reddish brown in color and no flowers.
When I saw this ornamental bush, Rose is what came to my mind first.
I said rose family, not Rose in particular. My genus guess is Photinia.
I know what you meant.
I was also trying to say the leaves looked similar to the Rose leaves….not the Rose plant.
Rose came to my mind on seeing the leaves.
Sir ji, one of the picture is taken at the Moghul Gardens Cheshmeshahi.
If you happen to visit the place, do keep a lookout.
…, on searching for Photinia, it does resemble my plant.
