Maple-leavedOak (Quercus acerfolia) acorn is growing! 楓葉橡的橡實努力生長中.

It is one of the rare oaks.  Native in few states of south US. I do hope its habitat will recover and even expand!   Unique foliage with maple leaf resemblance with beautiful red fall color, it deserves more attention for sure!  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location.  USDA Zones:5-8. Mature size:40′-50′(H) X 20′-30′(W).  Propagate by seeds. Drought tolerant once established.

這是種很少見的橡樹之一.  原生美國南部的很少幾州.  我希望它在原生地能復育甚至於擴張到其他地方!

這種橡樹有著獨特的葉形,很像楓樹葉片,並且秋天時也能像楓葉轉紅,蠻值得種的! 其實蠻容易栽種的. 最好栽種在全日照處. 耐寒性不錯,但耐熱性欠佳.  成熟株高40-50呎,寬幅20-30呎.  繁殖主以種子來進行.  植株穩定後相當耐旱.

Black Gojiberry (Lycium ruthenicum Murr.) seedling. 黑果枸杞的實生小苗.

Cold hardy shrub with edible fruit, prickly though.  😦   This well branched low height shrub is easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Drought tolerant once plant is established.  Small magenta/purple flowers in late spring to summer then the fruit ripe to deep purple-black.  Many small seeds in each berry.   Silvery green foliage with ripe dark berries has its unique look!  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  Ripe fruit attract birds and wildlife to feed on and edible for human.   USDA Zones:5-10. Mature size:1′-6′(H) X 4′-5′(W). Propagate by seeds, cuttings or division.  Medicinal.   Nitraria (Nitraria tangutorum Bor.) is very similar with black gojiberry but each berry only has one large seed.)

耐寒強健的灌木著生可食性莓果,蠻多刺的.  😦  它容易栽種,其灌木低矮自然分支多.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  植株生長穩定後頗為耐旱. 春末到夏天開桃紅/紫色小花.  銀灰綠的葉片搭配熟成紫黑色的果實頗為好看!  花頗吸引蜂蝶. 熟果除人類可食外亦吸引鳥類與其他野生動物前來覓食.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高1-6呎,寬幅4-5呎.  繁殖方式以種子,扦插或分株方式來進行.  藥用.  唐古特白刺(學名Nitraria tangutorum Bor.) 果實外型跟黑枸杞果實很相似但一枚果實內僅一枚種子,黑枸杞則有數個小種子.
