Water Mimosa/Sensitive Neptunia(Neptunia oleracea) seeds. 水含羞草的種子.

Tropical or subtropical aquatic perennial/vegetable.  Like Mimosa pudica but without pricks! Its leaves close once they are touched or in the evening.  Small yellow pom-pom like flowers in summer to fall.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  Plant has tiny airbags like cells so it floats on the water. Edible young leaves can be cooked as leafy vegetable or can be ate raw. Very easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in water.   USDA Zones:8/9-12.  Mature size:3″-6″(H) X 1′-5′(W).   Propagate by seeds, cuttings or division. Could be invasive in warm climate.  Fast growing.  Good for containers indoors.  Medicinal.

熱帶或亞熱帶的水生多年生植物/葉菜.  長的如同含羞草一樣但是沒有刺!  葉片夜晚或經碰觸會閉合.  黃色小花球於夏秋開放,頗吸引蜂蝶.  嫩葉可生食或炒煮食用.  非常容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  喜熱不耐寒.  成熟株高3-6吋,寬幅為1-5呎.  繁殖方式以種子,扦插或分株方式來進行.  在溫暖水域可能成為強勢植物.  生長快速.  適合室內盆植.  藥用.
