Tender perennial flowering vine.  Whole plant is medicinal and edible.  Leaves can be harvested and cooked as leafy vegetable or as I remembered to chop the leaves and mix with eggs to make omelet.  It is very common used to give a boost for kids or young adults to grow taller.  Also could dry the harvested leaves then blend the dried leaves into powder for storage, when use the powder can mix with rice flour to make dumpling kind of food.  It is a fast growing vine so in some warm countries not eating them will be considered as invasive weed.  The whole plant has an strong scent/odour some people really dislike it hence the common name.

Best grow in full sun to partial shade loction.   Small bell shape, white flowers with magenta inner flower colour in large amount in summer.  Yellow-orange ripe fruit in fall, inside of its fruit with dark seeds. USDA Zones:6-11.   Mature size:20′(L/H) . Self-seed.  Propagate by seeds, cuttings or dividing plants.

多年生草花爬藤.  不甚耐寒.  全草具有藥用及食用價值. 葉片可採來如葉菜類煮食,或切碎後炒蛋吃. 老一輩的人說給小孩吃能幫助長高.   根切小段後燉煮粉腸可以治頑強咳嗽.    中國南方通常藉由乾燥葉片後搗成粉狀來貯存或和麵包餡做成粿或餃或丸形來吃.  由於它生長快速,在某些不吃它的溫暖國家被視為強勢的雜草.  全株有濃濃特殊的味道,有些人很不喜歡所以有臭藤的別名.  易於栽種,不耐寒.  開小花如小鈴鐺,外白內紅,數量多.  果熟呈橘黃色,外有薄硬殼,內有種子1-2枚.  種子約播下後5-7天內發芽.  繁殖以種子,壓條,扦插或分株.  它算是兼具食用與藥用的路邊野草!  非常容易栽種在全日照到半日照處.  夏天開花,秋結橘黃色果實,果實內種子黑色.  容易結子.  成熟藤高/長20呎.

Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda ‘Black Dragon’/’Yae-kokuryu’) sometimes seedlings is a bit different. This one has reddish brown young leaves and stem. 日本黑龍紫藤實生苗有時會有些微變異. 這株的新葉及莖幹明顯呈紅褐色.

It has beautiful fragrant double purple long clusters of flowers, gorgeous!   Bloom in mid spring to late spring.   Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location.   Flowers attract bees and butterflies.   Excellent for bonsai tree, can be trained for a free standing tree or let it climb as a vine on strong structure.   Mature size:20′-40′(L) X 20′-40′(W).  USDA Zones:4-9.  Fast growing.  Propagate by seeds, cuttings, layering and grafting.  Plant is toxic if ingested.  Seed germinate easily with the seed coating on or off in just few days. Originally thought it is same black dragon but it turns out not the same, I wonder if the sign of the name got mixed up?

這種紫藤有著美麗芳香重瓣紫花的垂墜長花序,真的很美!  於仲春開到春末.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照處.  花頗吸引蜂蝶.  盆景或地植皆適宜,除了一般為攀爬於棚架上外也能訓練成獨立無支撐物的樹型.  成熟株高/長20-40呎/寬幅. 耐寒也頗耐熱. 生長速度很快.  繁殖以種子,扦插,壓條/高壓或嫁接方式來進行.  植株有毒勿食.  孵紫藤種子很容易,可去種皮或不去種子皆可都是幾天就能發芽. 原以為是八重黑龍Naganoda“BlackDragon”結果不是,不知道是植物園牌子寫錯了還是? 原來所謂黑龍有分黑龍(非重瓣)及八重黑龍(重瓣).
