牛軛草 murdannia loriformis

大抵自己矮個子,對地上長出細小的野花野草特別留心。

這春末的時節,野花飆放。上星期在海防博物館一少人走到的草坡,發現這玲瓏三瓣淡紫花兒。

網上搜尋,找到相關內容絕多來自臺灣。其中《台中市立後裡國民中學網頁》,尤為詳盡。上說牛軛草原生中國大陸、越南、台灣。鴨草科多年生草本植物。株高約 20 至40公分。葉互生,劍形或線狀披針形,全緣,葉面銅綠色,葉背子紅色。春至夏季開花,上午開花,午前即謝,花謝花開,日日更新。性強健粗放,耐旱、耐陰,生長密集,葉色異雅。

my radar is sensitive to small stuff, including tiny wild flowers. late spring is a good wild flower hunting season. encountering them at a tuck-away ground in the museum of coastal defense. searching on the net and found a number of information sources from taiwan. couldn’t locate a common name so far, guess it is because this plant is an asian native. the tiny three-pedal lavender flowers are adorable.
