藍蝴蝶 blue butterfly bush (clerodendrum ugandense)

藍蝴蝶來自非洲。春夏秋天開花,姿態優美。名字點出,她像蝴蝶。我倒覺得更像穿上紫色舞服的芭蕾舞孃。

blue butterfly bush is an evergreen shrub from africa. it flowers in spring and summer. it is very attractive but the beauty is not limited to its blossoms; its colours, lines and shapes and its architecture are all interesting.

欣賞藍蝴蝶,可以多角度,色彩、線條、形狀、結構 –

幼枝方形,綠色帶紫暈。

葉在嬌柔的花朵下,顯得寬大。葉對生,倒卵形。葉全緣或有淺疏鋸齒。

印象中,花是紫藍色的。但認真一看,五裂花萼,四瓣白色或淡藍色,只是紫藍色唇瓣將我們腦海的色板鎖上了。

the flowers are in blue, two shades; pale blue and violet-blue blend together results in the most unusual and delicate colours among the green.

then, the long whisker-like stamens and stigma extend from each, throwing in curves and tapping in some dancing steps.

柔媚的底調,卻投出長線節拍,四根花絲探身空中,紫色花藥隨風點頭。

the evergreen shrub are having opposite leaves that are egg-shaped and toothed. they look bigger,lying below, compare to elegant panicles of inflorescences borne high at the ends of long arching branches.

果期開始,身段改變。枝頭舉起綠色金杯。成熟的果子,綠褪紫增,然後變成紫黑球狀。

when the plant fruits, there is an architectural beauty. young fruit are branching out in goblets of golden green. they later will mature into chandeliers of purplish black fruit.
