木蘭屬 magnolia

每年春天,玉蘭燦爛盛放。紫玉蘭尤其帶有衣錦還鄉,孔雀開屏的繃張。季候一到,一樹鋪天蓋地的紫盞。賞花人驚豔時,血脈神經也像抽緊一下。

the magnolia family is one of the most primitive group of angiosperms.it is a big family, with a big branch native to south america and another variety originated from china.

purple magnolia is from southwest china. every spring it gives me lots of anticipation. all of a sudden one spring day, one will see hairy buds like those of the cat tail willow sprung out from every branch. a number of days later, showy purple flower cups open and seize your heart. and, i can’t help thinking that this flower is so elizabeth taylor. she simply shines luscious yet elegant beauty.

紫玉蘭繁茂吐豔,旁邊的玉堂春,滲透冰清明媚的瑩潤。兵頭花園的玉蘭圃,大放蓄收没,好不精彩。yulan magnolia on the other hand is a queen from the polar region. the white petals glow with purity and serenity.

維基百科& wiki:

  • 紫玉蘭 (magnolia liliiflora) ,又名木蘭、辛夷(江蘇)、木筆(花鏡)、望春、女郎花,為中國特有植物,分佈在中國大陸的雲南、福建、湖北、四川等地,生長於海拔300米至1,600米的地區,一般生長在山坡林緣[2]。紫玉蘭花朵艷麗怡人,芳香淡雅,「紫苞紅焰,作蓮及蘭花香」,故唐代裴迪有詩:「況有辛夷花,色與芙蓉亂。」。
  • 紫玉蘭已在《中國物種紅色名錄》中被評為易危,且不易移植和養護,因此是非常珍貴的花木。
  • 紫玉蘭在中國有着悠久的歷史,早在戰國時期屈原的《九歌》和《九章》中就有描述。紫玉蘭樹皮、葉、花蕾均可入藥,花蕾入藥稱「辛夷」,系名貴中藥材,具有降壓、鎮疼、收斂、殺菌等功效,可治肺炎、瘡毒、鼻炎、頭疼等症。紫玉蘭樹皮、葉、花可用於提取香精,製作高檔香料、飲品和食品,也可用於調配香皂和化妝品,有很高的經濟價值。
  • 民間傳統的宅院配植中講究「玉棠春富貴」,其意為吉祥如意、富有和權勢。所謂玉即玉蘭、棠即海棠、春即迎春、富為牡丹、貴乃桂花。
  • 玉蘭(magnolia_denudata)盛開之際有「瑩潔清麗,恍疑冰雪」之贊。如配植於紀念性建築之前則有「玉潔冰清」象徵著品格的高尚和具有崇高理想脫卻世俗之意。如從植於草坪或針葉樹叢之前,則能形成春光明媚的景境,給人以青春、喜悅和充滿生氣的感染力。
  • magnolia denudata, known as the yulan magnolia (chinese: 玉蘭花), is native to central and eastern china. it has been cultivated in chinese buddhist temple gardens since 600 ad. its flowers were regarded as a symbol of purity in the tang dynasty and it was planted in the grounds of the emperor’s palace. it is the official city flower of shanghai.
