The fallen leaf looks more spectacular than the one on the tree. The leaf comes from a Lagerstroemia speciosa tree which is also known by the following common names: Rose of India, Pride of India, Queen's flower, banaba, among others. Here is a webpage with interesting info about the tree http://www.tropilab.com/queen-flow.html.
