Hardy aquatic plant. Perennial.    Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in pond or aquarium.  USDA Zones:5-11. Mature size:1.5′-2′(H) X 4′-6′(W).  Propagate by cuttings,bulbs or division.  Fast growing, could be invasive.  My opinion it is only good inside the aquarium for small fish.  Do not grow them in open water!

水王孫又叫做黑藻. 長得跟水蘊草很像但葉片較為稀疏. 強健的水生植物.  多年生.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照的池塘或水族箱中.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高1.5-2呎,寬幅4-6呎.  繁殖方式以扦插,球根或分株的方式來進行. 生長極為快速會成為強勢植物.  我覺得這養在水族箱內跟魚類一起就好.  勿在開放水域內放養!

Hardy Kiwi (Actinidia argute ‘Issai’ ) this is a self pollinating variety. It is setting fruit! 此品種的奇異莓有完全花可自花授粉. 結果中!

A cold hardy fruit vine!  A self pollinate fruit vine!     Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location.   Creamy white flowers in late spring to early summer.  Supposed to be with fragrant flowers but I did not detect any noticeable fragrance on these small flowers.  Edible small smooth-surfaced green berries are ready for harvesting in late summer to fall.  Plant flower and fruit on previous growth.   USDA Zones:4-9. Mature size:10′-20′(H/L).  Propagate by seeds, cuttings,  layering or grafting.  Fast growing.  Require strong structure for vine to cling on.

相當耐寒強健的水果藤蔓! 更棒的是有兩者雄蕊與雌蕊的完全花所以能自花授粉! 容易栽種. 最好栽種在全日照處.  乳白色的小花於春末夏初盛開.  花頗吸引蜂蝶. 雖然她的小花該是有花香的,可是聞的時候沒有聞到.  可以食用的綠色,果實表面光滑的小果於夏秋間成熟便可以採收食用. 它的扮老枝條才是會開花結果的藤,所以修剪時要注意.  耐寒也還算耐熱.  成熟株高/藤長10-20呎.  繁殖方式以種子,扦插,壓條或嫁接的方式來進行.  生長快速.  需要堅固耐用的支架來供其攀爬.
