炮仗花 fire-cracker vine/flamevine (pyrostegia venusta)

過年遇著炮仗花,就是喜慶,不得不立文特表。此花常見,也就更要多認識。 此花原生於南美,但經已廣泛成為花園種植品種。 來到了亞洲中國人的地方,更被擁護為喜氣的象徵。事實是,春夏之間,此藤本植物一到花期,真的嘩啦嘩啦一發不可收拾地盛放,攀滿園地山坡。 觀其細節,深綠葉對生,部分葉會發展成三叉卷鬚。花筒橙紅色,橙黃花柱與花絲伸出。花絲絲狀,花藥叉開。花柱柱頭舌狀扁平。 flame vine or more commonly known in hong kong as fire-cracker vine is a south amercian native. this species however now is generally a garden species. in hong kong as well as being used in gardening, very often you see them in the wild. it was chinese new year holiday and...

龍和道的金蒲桃 golden penda (xanthostemon chrysanthus) along lung wo road

今天立法會選舉公佈結果。最近龍和道上金黃閃耀,是特殊的感應? 其實是龍和道的公路中間,種植一排金蒲桃,正應時開花。 金蒲桃來自澳洲,在香港的公園和樹道蠻常見。這常綠小喬木,夏秋之間開花。金黃色的花球,來勢洶洶,而且花期長。 大家細心端詳美麗的聚傘花序,會發覺主角是濃密的雄蕊花絲而並非花瓣。 一絲一絲聚合起來成傘,爾後更會成果。世事與自然界道理也如是。 yesterday the city went through the legco election, today is the result day. we are not discussing the election here. it just happened that two days ago i went pass admiralty and the government hq and i walked all the way to central. along the route, there is lung wo...

路邊牡荊/黃荊 chinese chaste tree along roadsides

之前遇到的牡荊是一棵樹,高大,賞花要仰望。 最近在山邊路旁看到盈盈嫩綠葉叢當中,冒起淺紫美美伸展花串,覺得眼熟。拍照,回來查究,原來是同一植物。 看似草本的黃荊,成熟後是灌木或小喬木。植物的花玲瓏巧美,近看那密被細毛還像流蘇的舞衣。 this plant is blossoming away along roadside and hillside under hot bright summer sun. the bluish violet flower panicles look like small dancing fairies in tutu. it looks like a herbivore. this is actually a shrub or small tree i wrote here before. the low-lying posture deceives me while allowing me to...
