飛揚草和豐花草 two herbs – asthma plant and borreria

兩種草本植物,頂著花朵在植物中央的模樣,有點相似。但再觀量其造型,考查家族背景,兩者其實各適其式。

these two herbaceous plants share a similar look when holding their blooms close to heart.  but taking closer looks to the plants and their information, they have their separate worlds.

飛揚草 asthma plant (euphorbia hirta) – 植物界 kingdom | 被子植物門 magnoliophyta division | 雙子葉植物綱 magnoliopsida class | 金虎尾目 malpighiales order | 大戟科 euphorbiaceae family | 大戟屬 euphorbia genius | 種 species: 飛揚草 e. hirta 《醫學百科

飛揚草,一如其名,比較潑灑粗線條。一年生草本。

葉和枝有毛。長圓卵形葉,對生,有鋸齒。夏季開小花,聚傘花序,結聚葉腋成杯狀。朔果卵狀三棱形。相中的飛揚草,似是花果共存。

asthma plant is an annual herbaceous. it has hairy stems and leaves. leaves are in pair with purplish markings, elliptical and with dentate margin. the petal-lacking flowers are unisexual and found in axillary cymes at each leaf node. the fruit is a capsule with three compartments, each containing a reddish-brown seed. This asthma plant in the photo seems to be having flower and fruit at the same time.
