絲木綿的果和絲 the fruit of floss silk tree (ceiba speciosa)

第四次絲木棉的專文,這次是此植物的全新角度,賞樹看到不同階段,是幸福的。 之前幾次都在說花,搶眼花俏。而絲木綿果實的觀相,讓我意外地憐愛。 另外,也加一筆有關此落葉樹的植物分類更新。 在城市內熟悉的幾棵標誌性絲木棉,均高大昂藏,一切觀察盡是遠距離的。有幸,居住不遠有個地方,幾年前新種植一些絲木綿,給與我較方便的觀察。 wrote about floss silk tree before, but this is a brand new angle on the plant. not about the flashy and attractive flowers any more, we are looking at its fruit this time. personally found the fruit and its content adorable almost like some cute animation characters. at the end of...

大花老鴉咀 large flowered thunbergia / blue skyflower (thunbergia grandiflora)

自己是市區人,有點愧疚,最初認識此花是在兵頭花園 (動植物公園)。嬌美茂盛的花朵,見於園內栽種園圃的矮小植物,不覺此是藤蔓植物。 後知後覺地,今年第一次欣賞到野外花盛狀況,才真正感受此植物的特性。 此常綠藤本原生於南亞及中國。全年開花,但以夏秋最盛。 大埔滘郊野公園山谷間,藍紫色瀑布漫山傾瀉,美極。 總狀花序,懸垂性,大花呈唇狀;花冠藍紫色,喉部淺黃色。按《樹木谷》所指,「大花老鴉嘴」名稱前半描述其花,後半比擬其果;果熟轉黑、張口。葉厚對生,葉形多樣,心型至卵形。 this vine is easy and pretty. it blooms in the tropic all year round. it is native to south asia, including bengal and india; as well as to china. for us the flowering seasons come spring and autumn. two of its chinese common names start with “large flowered”. that...

兩粵黃檀花期 bentham’s rosewood (dalbergia benthamii) flowers

遇到本土植物,且沒有寫過的,就很有衝動紀錄下來。 兩粵黃檀開花場面是鋪天蓋地式的,充滿爆發力。 白色花冠細小,逐朵細看就是蝶形花科的特色。群花去賞,總是覺得每朵小花鮮白得銳利如小戟。 圓錐花序腋生,茂密程度猶如一支支花棒。 這植物原生香港、廣東、廣西等地,木質藤本(也有算成灌木) 生長及攀緣於疏林的樹木上,霎眼還以為她們也是大樹。 兩粵黃檀的葉也有工整美,葉片卵形互生近革質。 this is a hong kong and southern china native. we are right at its flowering season. i am a shallow person, always connect a climber with the impression of limp and weak. this woody climber proves me wrong. the typical papilionaceous white florets boom in density. the flowering...
