落羽杉紅裝 bald cypress in the season of red

2012年2月寫過落羽杉,今年又被他一身紅迷倒,不得不記。

落羽杉是少有會落葉的杉樹。落羽前習慣來一場為人們帶充滿感官享受的演出。

本來樹形優美油綠,到了秋冬轉成金棕,而且開始抖落羽葉。在陽光燦爛的日子,樹照耀出橙紅光澤,而且散發暗暗的杉香。

this blog covered bald cypress last year around the same time. these trees are delivering another great show shedding their leaves this year.

cypress and pine usually are evergreen, but bald cypress as another common name suggests is a deciduous cypress. originally the tree maintains an upright, neat and pretty crown in green. when winter matures, it starts turning brown before shedding its feathery leaves. the brown looks particularly attractive in sun rays. the tree seems to glow in golden red.  as more and more leaves fall, they laid the surrounding ground an orange brown carpet. and this is not only a visual display, the tree and the fallen leaves are giving out a lovely subtle scent.

一月底,探訪動植物公園,動物園區內、古樹名目有記錄的落羽杉,金棕耀眼,施展迷魂功。they are on the register of old & valuable tree and they surely are no youngster. this winter almost spring, the bald cypresses at the zoological and botanic gardens are firing red and the perfume is so wonderful. bald cypress botanic

遮打花園的落羽杉,落葉比較慢,褐色將整齊的樹姿,顯得更美妙。what a lovely cone shape, it is a perfect cypress. and the reddish-brown makes a magic touch to this fine tree at the charter garden.bald cypress charter
