重瓣郁李 japanese bush cherry (prunus japonica)

豔如桃李就是如斯醉人。

香港的網站未能找到郁李資料,台灣的卻有不少:郁李別稱西洋梅,原產中國及日本。有說郁李不是梅,而英文俗名牽連到櫻桃及梅花。有點撲溯迷離。也罷,粉白暈紅迷倒春日。

japanese bush cherry – other common names in hong kong: dwarf flowering cherry or flowering plum tree – is native to china and japan.

this scrub planted in the botanic garden is very short. but the beauty is magnetic and bigger than life. the double petals magnify the delicacy and purity of the pink and white.

郁李 prunus japonica : 科family: 薔薇科 rosaceae | 屬genus: 梅屬 prunus

  • 參考《草木深花房》郁李,薔薇科落葉灌木。花期初春,先花後葉,淡白至粉紅色小花群綻於枝稍,花型有單、重瓣之分。重瓣花型為園藝品種,俗稱西洋梅、榆葉梅,花瓣層疊,花型豐腴,強健植株常見滿樹的粉白暈紅,煞是迷人。
  • 參考《臺中市立后里國民中學》郁李為薔薇科梅屬落葉灌木。別名: 山李、爵李、爵梅、常棣、雀梅、壽李、秧李、薁李、鬱李、車下李
  • reference from wiki: prunus japonica (also cerasus japonica), also called korean cherry, flowering almond or oriental bush cherry, is a shrub species in the genus prunus, that is widely cultivated for ornamental use. its native range extends from central china through to the korean peninsula. p. maximowiczii, the miyama cherry is also often referred to as korean cherry.
