土人參 fameflower

這植物我暫時只在培育的園地看到,有點人為的環境;但實在忍不住要記下一筆。

i haven’t spotted this plant in the wild so far. the only encounters happened at somehow ‘manmade’ environment, at hong kong park’s greenhouse and at the herbal garden at the botanic garden. yet i can’t help introducing it because it is simply enchanting.

因為纖幼的草本植物,結出的果太引人入勝 – 猶如亮著閃燈的聖誕樹的效果,小如芝麻但圓渾的蒴果子,有紅的紫的,帶著亮澤。

就是有些植物,在一些時節,讓人心神飛馳。土人參結果初段,像微型火樹銀花,綻放精彩色調。據《中草藥大全》說,果成熟是灰褐色。璀璨後歸於平淡。

we are now at the fruiting season. this slender herbaceous plant becomes a miniature christmas tree with elegance and glitter. Don’t the tiny fruit beads assemble those dazzling baubles.

Interestingly this American native is named earthly ginseng in Chinese. The root of the plant is used as herbal medicine.
