Mina lobata (Ipomea lobata) 金魚花/魚花蔦蘿
This annual flowering vine is same genus with morning glory although the flower shape is totally different. Flowers from green turn yellow/orange/red on a upright flower stem on the same side. Easy to grow in full sun to partial shade location. The trick to get it flower soon without growing too many leaves is growing in a small pot with moist, not so rich soil. This way the plant will age quickly to form flower buds then you can grow it in the rich soil in the ground or in large pot for it to thrive. Will require the climbing support. Easy to propagate by seeds or cuttings. Beautiful!
金魚花(又名:魚花蔦蘿、可倫花) 我今年在實驗它,它是很好種的,跟朝顏同屬. 它是奇特的爬藤類一年生草本,花和同屬的朝顏很不同,且一花莖數小花開在同一面,花色漸層由黃,橘到紅. 主以種子但也可扦插繁殖. 種這花的訣竅是先用小盆種裝溼潤不肥沃的土來種,種在全日照到半日照處. 如此可使植株快些老化開花結子而不浪費在長葉上. 待花苞形成後再用肥沃的土壤換大盆或地植讓它長茂盛. 須用攀爬用網架. 它是很美很獨特的爬藤草花!
