耳果相思的耳果 the fruit of earleaf acacia/earpod wattle

耳果相思與香港種植繁多的樹種台灣相思是同科同屬的,所以他們某些特徵相近,如開黃色毛絨的花, 如他們的真葉只出現在幼苗時期,成樹茂密的是葉柄進化的「假葉」。 耳果相思在香港的郊區和市區常見,是常綠喬木。原籍澳洲、南亞。 此樹的「假葉」呈闊鐮刀形,有三、四主脈。穗狀花序,橙黃色細小花數枚簇生於葉腋或枝頂。 立即介紹本文的主角,耳果相思的莢果。何其有趣的造型,扭彎再扭彎,植物科學前輩認為像耳朵故命名。我則覺得像搖鼓,特別是果成熟木化後。這照片是本星期拍的,果實非常鮮嫩,帶著新生的粉綠色。 acacia is a very common planting species in hong kong. back in the 1970s formosa acacia was one of the top three species planting in our country parks as well as in the city. earleaf acacia shares the same family and genus with formosa acacia and it is also common...

洋金鳳 peacock flower / poinciana (caesalpinia pulcherrima)

洋金鳳的花很漂亮,在香港的公園蠻常見。近日在兵頭花園近遇著這灌木,同時欣賞到花蕾 花開和初果,每樣都美美的,於是在此記錄一筆。 植物來自美洲熱帶、亞熱帶,是加勒比海島國巴巴多斯的國花。這些背景資料似乎隱隱滲透花朵的美豔氣息。 peacock flower originates from the america. but it is commonly planted around the world, hong kong is no exception, as it is such a beautiful plant. you may find them quite easily in parks around the city. lately i came across this plant with its buds, blossoms and fruit showing altogether. since...

合歡 - 紅與黃 red and yellow albizzia in summer

最近走在山邊路上以及公園,不時看到毛茸茸的花朵,有黃有紅。黃的是大葉合歡,紅的是合歡。 兩者是香港常見樹木,原生於東南亞以及華南。 兩花的形態是毛絨的,但予人感覺並非可愛,而是清麗。 these days walking along hillside and green areas, sometimes in parks, there are quite many red and yellow fluffs blossoming on tree tops, adding some tenderness and senses of romanticism to summer. both are from the pea family and mimosa genus and are natives to south-east asia and southern china. 紅的,可能讓人聯想到紅絨球那灌木,但合歡的紅花,花絲纖纖,色較淡,不似紅絨球的濃妝。 《中文百科在線》寫合歡樹寫得很美,節錄:合歡樹,花美,形似絨球,清香襲人;葉奇,日落而合,日出而開,給人以友好之象征。落葉喬木,傘形樹冠。葉互生,傘房狀花序,雄蕊花絲猶如縷狀,半白半紅,故有“馬纓花”、“絨花”之稱。...
