炎炎夏日,看樹周圍都是深綠一片,突然遇到一片毛黃色,不自覺走近。 白楸真的是種繽紛的喬木。這個時候開始花季,色彩就來了。本身常綠,葉是青綠色,準備開花,葉叢中心拔起新嫩的葉,還有花蕾,皆嫩毛棕黃的色調,不顯眼奪目,但那種帶質的顏色一樣誘人。然後風一吹過,葉底那新白,像海浪的白花,色彩配合動感,自是目不暇給。 turn-in-the-wind flowering season spans from summer to autumn. it is the early stage. we can spot trees in the city started showing signs. in the middle of the green mature leaves, are some small and young leaves in grey-yellow with tomentum; floret as well. the evergreen tree does not produce sharp colours but...

百香果、龍珠果 passion fruit & stinky passion fruit

兩種果均同科同屬西番蓮,十一月以來在不同地方遇到她們正值花果期。看她們的花,何等魔幻,讓我聯想到白雪公主等童話人物的造型。 these two types of fruit are close relatives, under the same passifloraceae family and passiflora genus. their drama-looking flowers are fascinating. happen that since november i encounter the two plants at few different places flowering and fruiting around the city. felt the urge to understand more about these plants.   在此引用台灣網站《認識植物》(莊溪製作)對西番蓮科植物的特徵介紹,先來立體地理解兩種植物的共通點: 草本或藤本,具捲鬚。 單葉,互生,具裂片或掌裂。 花兩性或單性,大多具小苞片,單生或成總狀或繖房狀;副花冠多變,常具鮮明顏色;萼片3-5,稀缺;花瓣5;雄蕊5;柱頭3-5,頭狀。...

白楸的花 turn-in-the-wind blooms

這陣子走到山邊、郊外,都會看到白楸正值花季。花沒有開出奪目的色彩,但每棵樹都沉淡地綻放熱鬧滿樹的花。 白楸是本地原生小型喬木,花雌雄異株。白黃色細小花朵密集組成(總狀)花序生於枝頂(頂生),映照不太壯大的樹身,感覺濃郁喧鬧。 快到你身邊的綠地方,應該不難看到白楸,欣賞一下這種低調但強烈的植物季候景致。 同時,讓你參考年前10月寫過白楸的果 - 《白楸的果 turn-in-the-wind and there are fruit》,準備接下來這物種的果季。 turn-in-the-wind is common in and native to hong kong. it is its flowering season now. you won’t miss it even though there is no bright colour. small yellowish white flowers build dense towers at tips of branches, or flowers in terminal, branched racemes in...
