糖膠樹的花和葉 flowers and leaves of devil tree (alstonia scholaris)

雖然寫過此植物,但最近在公園看到她花初開的模樣,又忍不住拍照並想分享,因為覺得這植物的花的形態很吸引,漂亮卻跟平常的花朵不一樣 (應該受到她英文名字「魔鬼樹」的影響)。然後再留意其葉,其鮮明的造型又覺得值得寫一下。 feature this plant before, but few days ago saw this tree started blooming. few young flowers and more flower buds busily gathering at the branch tips are delivering pretty and attractive imagery. and then the leave pattern also caught my attention.  於是找來《中國植物誌》的描述,配合前幾天拍下的花姿和葉姿。 to give much credible description, quoting from australian tropical rainforest plants website...

【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】摩頓台南洋楹 moluccan albizia (falcataria moluccana) at moreton playground

銅鑼灣高士威道維園「兩岸」,有很多年長高壯的美麗大樹,希望日後陸續紀錄。 這次先寫在中央圖書館後側的這棵,因為拍照當天,適逢摩頓台足球場剛舉行盂蘭勝會,所以大樹附近的畫面跟平常風光不一樣,可以看到盂蘭的戲棚,戲班的人還在。特意紀錄。 銅鑼灣這場地的盂蘭,由潮州公和堂舉辦。他們的盂蘭,2017年已經辦到120屆了。 回說南洋楹,樹型美麗,而且樹屬高大喬木,在外地最高可達40米。從他的名字可知道來自南洋、馬六甲一帶。 觀乎外型,容易聯想到我們很喜歡的鳳凰木,也有點像最近寫過的雨樹。三者均同在豆科下,鳳凰木是一般喬木,高度不可能挑戰南洋楹。最容易辨認三木,自然是開花時,鳳凰木開紅花,雨樹是粉紅的,南洋楹則是白近黃,而後兩者都是含羞草亞科的,所以花形呈毛球狀。 南洋楹的花期在春末初夏。 拍照當天周圍寧靜,不過週末時分,這裡有不少外傭聚集。看過她們興高采烈而且甚有隊形地在大樹前面的排球場比賽。南洋楹高昂祥和地站駐行人路上,下面人聲鼎沸,場面熱烈,好一幅悠然的週末風景。 there are plenty handsome and mature trees along the sides of causeway road just around this area. will slowly cover them one by one here. but first this moluccan albizia. it is on the pedestrian road toward the back of the central library next to the moreton temporary...

貝澳 - 水牛家園及多樣自然生境 pui o, home of many buffalo and a land of great bio-diversity

跟大嶼山不少地方一樣,貝澳從前是種稻米的。耕田就需要牛。於是農民遠道從元朗引入牛隻。也跟大嶼山其他地方一樣,因為建造水塘,原來惠澤農田的天然水源都受人為干擾劫亂了,農民開始棄耕,加上經濟轉型,最後農業枯廢了。 農地丟廢了,對環境生態本有著危機。因為農地無人疏水,大雨可能引發氾濫,然後周圍就會給比較霸道的植物佔領,形成單調的生態。 pui o used to be a thriving village town on the lantau island. there used to be many paddy rice fields here. and buffalos were bought all the way from yuen long to here for farming. but as time changed, economic pattern switched, city life grew, and one lethal injection to farming here...

【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】黃竹坑雨樹 rain tree (albizia saman) on wong chuk hang road

決定建立【本城美樹】此欄目,因為城內很多樹木都很美且需要保護,不少在頃刻間突然被消失了或自己走了。尤其經過上個月(2017年8月)兩個巨大颱風,造成大量樹木傷亡,覺得不容遲疑了。本部落平常寫樹木,筆觸集中植物特性,而此欄目則較著眼樹的人文關係,譬如地區和城市的聯繫。目的是一本自家的美樹名冊。 after two big typhoon last month, august 2017, found no more excuse to delay building this column on this blog. as a tree lover in this city, it is really painful to see many beautiful trees, many of them with historic and community value, suddenly disappear; many times due to human interference, sometimes of...
