有些植物的名字就是引人入勝,如曾寫過的《海島十大功勞 island mahonia (mahonia oiwakensis) 》;這次就來個大反差,由偉大下降至卑微,了解一下「小花十萬錯」。 也請容許我借花寄意,昨日經歷區議會選舉,自己屬意的候選議員落敗,意難平。 透過《柴娃娃旅行隊》網站介紹 ,讀到《馬灣千樹誌 tree blossom》 推敲「小花十萬錯」的名字的來由,頗有趣。 這多年生草本原生於非洲。植物雖小,但有不少容易認辨的特徵。她的莖呈四棱,總狀花序,花由底部開起。花冠管狀,白色,五裂,最下瓣中央有一片紫斑。蒴果長圓形。 如果大家是低頭族,請善用你的處境,多留意腳邊的小植物,小花十萬錯可能就在眼下。   chinese violet is native to africa but you can easily find it in the wild of south east asia including hong kong. according to flora of zimbabwe, subspecies gangetica occurs in tropical asia and the pacific. it is a slightly...
