酸葉膠藤的花 flowers of sour creeper (urceola rosea/ecdysanthera rosea)

幾年前寫過此木質攀藤,因為在濕地公園多番看到它可愛的果實。

猜不到原來自己日常經過的地區都有她的蹤跡。

酸葉膠藤是香港原生也普遍。

這陣子,在些山頭綠坡,看到一雲粉紅花霧,很大機會就是她。

酸葉膠藤開花熱熱鬧鬧,小小的粉紅花冠成圓錐花序。花期就在此時即初夏。

lately i have been drawn by the pink mist of flowers along road sides and slopes of victoria road. it was a pleasant surprise to find out that i actually knew this plant before, but the imagery is so different that i did not connect.

i saw this woody climber almost every fruit season at wetland park. don’t know why i never come across its flowering season. therefore my impression on this plant is always pairs of divergent follicles and the fluffy feathery seeds.

then now around may it is its blossoming time. getting closer look, you will realize the little pink blossoms are pretty, many of them in terminal spreading panicles.   

it is a hong kong native and good to draw bee.
