心型植物代表:珊瑚藤 a vine with heart-shaped parts: pink coral vine (antigonon leptopus)

珊瑚藤開花很奪目,可謂無人不愛。粉紅的花色,總是一串花鈴般熱鬧。

珊瑚藤是多年生木質藤本植物,半落葉,花期長。

這植物特質多,葉和花質感像紙,而兩者都呈心形。互生的葉是卵形或卵狀三角形,而基部深心形。花更有趣,由五個似花瓣的苞片組成,呈三菱形。

今天聖誕,就借此植物,送上心意和祝福。

coral vine is really pretty when blossoming. the pink 3-d heart-shaped flowers are papery and pleasantly pink. they bloom for many months and never come alone, the flowers always look cheery and appealing.

this mexico-native is perennial and having leaves in heart to arrow shape. it is a fast growing plant and almost pest-free.

today is christmas, allow me to use these “hearts” to send through all best wishes.
