庭菖蒲開花了!Blue-Eyed Grass Sisyrinchium angustifolium ‘Lucerne’

庭菖蒲Blue-Eyed Grass Sisyrinchium angustifolium ‘Lucerne’
Cute little perennial ground cover plant with dainty little flowers, it is very easy to grow and propagated. Full sun to partial shade.
庭菖蒲, 鳶尾科, 為北美原生多年生草本植物,容易栽種,全日照或半日照,喜溫暖,但不耐高溫,台灣適合高冷地栽培. 葉片細長像小草. 桃園長庚分院好像已有種植. 多以分株或種子來繁殖. 因為植株去年新買的所以這是第一次實際開花. 成熟植株高度約25cm高x40cm寬幅.

Good things about evergreen groundcovers! 善用常綠地被植物的好處!

Good things about evergreen groundcovers!
Good things about evergreen groundcovers:
1.Spring blooming go with the spring bulbs, visually show better.
2.Summer their coverage prevent water dry out quickly from Sun so you water less.
3.Some evergreen groundcovers have their fall foliage too, make fall garden colorful. Also disguise bulbs you planted from animals.
4.Winter time when no snow, the evergreen groundcovers cover the ground so it is not visually empty and depressing.
5.If you use weed blog and evergreen groundcovers, you weed so little, save your weeding time and energy for something fun or relaxing!


4.冬天無冰雪時尚見常綠地被才不會見到禿禿的地表. 不至於整個冬天花園看起來很頹廢.
5.和透水布和碎柏木屑一起使用可大幅減少雜草的生長. 這樣可以保留精力做比較有意思+放鬆心情的趣事多好!
