春之大葉榕 big-leaved fig in spring

大葉榕換春裝,很有戲劇感。冬春之際,數天之內,黃了一頭,隨之哇啦哇啦,卸滿一地棕黃。秃枝凋零一星期左右,大葉榕的抽芽,溢瀉新氣象,就來一場天仙撒花(其實是葉苞片),半透明乳黃帶粉紅的薄片翩翩鋪蓋四周。終於嫩葉嬌柔大方出場。旋即生命喜悅的新綠豐潤樹冠,完成一場春之禮贊。

 

維基百科說,黃葛樹原產於中國華南和西南地區,以重慶、四川、湖北等地最多。宋《圖經》云:「塗山之足,有黃葛樹,其下有黃葛渡。」重慶至今仍有黃桷埡、黃葛坪等地名。黃葛樹是重慶市市樹。

big-leaved fig is a true performing art in spring. without any hint, the crown turns yellow and shed the leaves in few days during the time winter crosses spring. the bare branches create a silhouette treat against the skyline. but before one fully appreciate such beauty, sprouts start dotting then spreading. before you try catching a breathe, the bracts ballet and grace the surrounding with pink and beige laces. new greens step on the stage and deliver a complete a celebration of spring.

 

大葉榕又稱黃葛樹 big-leaved fig (ficus virens var. sublanceolata) – order: 薔薇目 rosales | family: 桑科 moraceae | genus: 榕屬 ficus | species: 黃葛樹 f. virens var. sublanceolata
