裂豆錐栗 castanopsis fissa

這陣子走到比較郊外的地方,偶爾便會看到一兩棵綻放多把淡黃小焰火的大樹,裂豆錐栗是也,或稱黧蒴錐。

this time of the year, around areas less urban, you are bound to see one or two at least castanopsis fissa. these trees can grow to 10 meters. they flowers in late spring. it is so easy to spot them, the inflorescence resemble pon pon in light yellow, or the exploding firework sticks we always play in any celebrations.

此樹可長至10米,是本地原生的常綠喬木。它的花期在春末。那些一蓬蓬如垂穗的花色花序,非常容易辨識。

不知道是否因此樹原生華南,網上無論是英語或臺灣的資料都很少。

they are hong kong and south china native and belong to the fagaceae family, or beech.
