顯脈金花茶 golden camellia (camellia euphlebia)

在動植物公園的茶花園,紅色的花種有些在12月開始現花蕾,而顯脈金花茶正值果期。

昨天遇見她金光初露。下垂嶄開的花苞,讓兩只蜜蜂忙個不亦樂乎。原來此品種在中國被列入國家二級保護名目。

there is only a brief description on wiki regarding golden camellia: “camellia euphlebia is a species of plant in the theaceae family. it is found in china and vietnam. it is threatened by habitat loss.”

bless the botanic garden. this rare species and a number other theaceae are growing healthy in the camellia garden. the shrubs bored capsules end of last year, and they just started blossoming beginning of february.
