Meanwhile, Nguyen Viet Thanh, a Vietnamese engineer, said this is a Kentucky coffeetree, and the scientific name is Gymnocladus angustifolius. This is a native plant in Lam Dong.

“This is a native plant that grows naturally in the mountains and hills in the southern Central Highlands, Lam Dong,” said Thanh, adding that his team is looking for a way to research and propagate this plant.

The color of the leaves depends on the weather. Usually, when the weather is cold, the leaves are darker in color. The leaves are red from January to April. Then they will turn yellow, then orange, and finally green.
