Indian Warrior (Pedicularis densiflora) seeds. 密花馬先蒿的種子.

 

Unique perennial, it is a root parasitic plant, often found host on oak trees, heath family…and yet it can survive on its own when there is no opportunity to host on other plant. It is a hemiparasitic plant. Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Seeds will germinate better after they are smoked.  Red flowers on flower stems appear in spring.   Good for cut flower.   USDA Zones:6-9.  Mature size:6″-1′(H) X 6″-9″(W).  Medicinal.  Propagate by seeds.  Suitable for growing in containers indoors.

它是很獨特的多年生草花,一種半寄生植物. 當有機會寄生時會寄生,偏愛橡樹或熊果屬植物,當沒有機會寄生時它也能"自立自強"靠自己.  這樣在植物界裡算是蠻進化的植物!  種子燻過後比較容易發芽.  容易栽種.  最好栽種於全日照到半日照處.  春開紅色小花於紅色花莖上,花頗吸引蜂蝶,花期不長. 適合切花. 喜熱不甚耐寒.  成熟株高僅6吋到1呎,寬幅6吋到9吋.   以種子來繁殖.  它是藥用植物.  它也適合室內盆植.
