Autumn burning bush are so gorgeous and bright!  It is hard not to notice them.  :)  This hardy shrub is very easy to grow in full sun location for best fall colour.   Even though it is OK with shady location but never the best in terms of colour changing in time before dropping the leaves.   Small pale yellow flowers in spring and follow the orange red fruit in late summer throughout the cold winter.   Fruits attract birds but the plant is mild toxic to human.

Propagate by cuttings, grafting or seeds.   Although all burning bush seedlings growth rate is extremely slow.  Buying mature plant is worthy.   USDA Zones:4-8.  Mature size:9′-11′(H)and (W).     This shrub tolerants heavy pruning so you can keep the hedge any desire height as you want.     ‘Rudy Haag’  is 3′-5′(H)and (W) if you do not want to prune them.

火燄衛矛秋天的紅豔葉色非常亮眼很難不注意到它們.  :)  這是很強健的小型灌木,很容易栽種在全日照處以利葉色轉為較紅.  半日照或蔭處雖也能生長,不過葉色的轉紅可能不一致並且落葉較快.  春天開淡黃色小花,隨即果實在夏末秋初時轉為橘紅色並維持到初冬,鳥類在冬天時缺乏食物會爭食其果實, 人類不可誤食.

繁殖多以扦插或高壓為主,雖也能用種子種出實生苗不過實生苗實在生長很慢並不建議.  還是買成株的容易又省時.  這種大量被使用在綠籬的小型灌木價格合理,各個花圃花店幾乎都能購得.  耐寒性佳.  成熟株高9-11呎,耐修剪.  如不想常修剪的話可以選擇較為矮性的品種叫: ‘Rudy Haag’,高與寬幅皆僅為3-5呎.

是容易栽種的一年生爬藤. 金蓮花的一種, 側面黃色的花形如空中停留的金絲雀, 你覺得像嗎?   容易以種子繁殖,種在全日照處,最好有支撐物可供攀爬.  它是好栽種的有趣的花園植物之一.

I must said these acorns are so cute!   And they are future mighty oaks!  :)

Oak trees are slow growing  large trees and have very useful hard wood for furniture, hard wood floor and so on; the seeds, acorns come with different appearances and sizes according to oak species.

Acorns can be food source for human and wild animals.  There are many recipes on line you can search if you are curious, such as acorn jelly/tofu.   You can easily grow an oak from an acorn in 10-30 days in moist but not saggy soil!   Acorns  are fabulous material for crafts!

I appreciate oak leaves turning beautiful colour in fall, red, orange, yellow or brown.  So beautiful! :)

What is your favorite oak?

橡實好可愛喔!  它們可是未來的大樹呢!  :)

橡樹生長緩慢但是它可是能生長成硬度極高的木材可用來做傢俱和橡木硬木地板.

橡實除了可以栽種外還可以是人及野生動物的食物,如果你有興趣的話網上可以查詢到許多如何料理橡實的食譜,如:橡子豆腐.  你可以很容易從橡實栽種出橡樹,在濕潤不積水的土壤或介質中大約需10-30天會發芽!    橡實也是做手工藝品的極佳材料!

我欣賞橡樹的秋色,紅,橙,黃或黃褐色.  好美!  :)

你最喜歡那種橡樹呢?
