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...

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

絡石 star jasmine (trachelospermum jasminoides)

絡石又稱絡石藤,是常綠攀緣木質藤本。植物各部分都有特色,藤和葉可入藥,果是長細成對的蓇葖果。而此時節,花是主角。 絡石花,白色,香鬱,可提取香油。聚繖花序頂生。花苞螺旋形,開花時扭轉平展。所以花形呈風車吹般的動態。 上星期在山頂,遇到花開。旁邊還有黃體鹿蛾一親香澤。 star jasmine is an evergreen woody liana. it is native to eastern and southeast asia for example japan and china. “jasminoides” from its name trachelospermum jasminoides is botanical latin for ‘jasmine-like’, that is to say it is not a true jasmine. the name honors the wonderful jasmine-like perfume produced by this vine...
