Japanese Wisteria ‘Shiro Noda’ (Wisteria floribunda) cam be propagated by cuttings.  This is how they look like when I got them.  日本白花紫藤可以枝條來扦插繁殖. 這是剛來才扦插的樣子.

White flower form Japanese wisteria vine.  Very hardy and easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Mid spring to early summer with nice long fragrant white flowers.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.     Propagate by seeds, cuttings, air layering or grafting.  USDA Zones:5-10. Mature size:30′-40′(H)/(L). But it can be trained as tree form for free standing.

*I am hoping to graft the shoots from white flower form to reblooming Wisteria plant.  In theory the white flower form shoots will flower once every season except winter.   But it is too cold to do so in winter…  I also germinated reblooming Wisteria seeds but their fragile stem are not woody enough to graft, perhaps in late spring or summer if these cuttings still alive to do so.  It will be better to root soon, of course.   Either way, it will be very interesting experiment!  Many thanks to my gardening friends’ help!  🙂

白花種的日本紫藤.  非常強健易於栽種.  最好栽種於全日照到半日照處.  仲春到初夏開花序蠻長流瀉而下的白色花串,優雅而清香.  花頗吸引蜂蝶.  以種子,枝條扦插,壓條或嫁接的方式來繁殖.  喜冷耐熱.  成熟株高30-40呎高/長.  但可以修剪來控制植株的大小或訓練成樹型.

*我是要來實驗將白花的紫藤芽嫁在續開紫藤上面,看這樣是否能借續開型除了冬季外每季開一次的好處,但這實驗由於季節不對,要等這些扦插枝條熬到春天能接時再說.  我也孵出了續開型紫藤的種子但枝芽太細尚未達木質化階段,嫁接困難.  所以也是得等到春天才行.  這會是個有趣的實驗!  在此感謝花友們的幫助!  🙂

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!

This fast growing perennial flowering vine is very hardy and easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location.  In Asia mainly has been growing for its leaves (can be harvested and cooked as leafy vegetable) or tubers/rhizomes can be medicinal for many medical uses.  USDA Zones:10-11.  Mature size:12′-15′(H) x 1′-2′(W).  White and green fragrant flowers in summer to fall.   Flowers attract bees.  Easy to propagate by tubers, rhizomes, offsets or soft wood cuttings.

落葵薯(Anredera cordifolia),又稱川七、藤三七,藤子三七,小年藥,土三七,藤七,馬德拉藤,洋落葵。為落葵科植物 “川七是多年生、常青、黏液質的爬藤植物,生長迅速,可長至約20公尺長。葉互生,平滑、肥厚、亮綠的心形葉子,約4至10多公分長。莖綠色,珠芽 (零餘子)疣狀、外形不規則,容易掉落,長成新株,其珠芽也是辨識這種植物的特徵之一。會開小而芳香、乳白色、密集、呈總狀花序的長花串,可達30公分長。這乳白的總狀花序,有些形似綿羊的小尾巴,因此別名為 Lamb’s tail。雖然它有雄花及雌花,但很少經傳粉而結子。 它的葉子、嫩莖、及地下塊莖煮熟後可食用。因此這種生長迅速的入侵性植物,成為「愛恨交加」的對象–政府、地主恨它侵佔土地、排擠原生植物;而喜歡食用葉子、嫩莖的一些人們,特別是東南亞國家,則愛它容易生長、豐盛、美味的菜蔬來源–例如它的葉子加點麻油、薑絲,或加些肉絲快炒,風味甚佳。又依據香港浸會大學中醫藥學院,川七可治腰膝痹痛,病後體弱,跌打損傷,及骨折。8 它喜全陽、潮濕但排水良好、富含有機質之砂質壤土,及能攀爬的籬笆或棚架。為了提高分枝數,初期的摘心工作不可省略,以利於側芽萌生,提高單株產量。一般生長高度約20公分時,即開始第一次摘心,之後每生長20公分摘心一次。9 寒冷地帶,植株需於秋梢移入室內;如留於室外園裡,需覆蓋足夠護根土過冬。冬天時,地上植株枯萎,春天由地下塊莖萌芽,或由去年掉落珠芽再生,長成新株。" — 摘自http://cshuang2.blogspot.ca/2014/11/madeira-vine.html

川七 (Madeira Vine) 喜強光,生長快速的多年生爬藤. 夏秋開白花有香味.  非常容易栽種. 常被用來當葉菜實用.  有藥用價值.  由於不易結果所以繁殖多以零餘子或扦插來進行.  因為它生長快速,對有些國家而言可能認定它為雜草.

It is beautiful! 🙂 I am growing 2 plants, they were from original 3 seeds, one seedling died 😦  these are for my gardening friend C.J. It has beautiful flowers with between ‘balloonflower’ and ‘snowflake’ shape, hence the variety name ‘Kikyo Snowflakes’.  Fairly easy to grow as all other morning glory.  Although only 5seeds for one seed portion from eBay is very expansive I will say…  Just to compare with all the rare seeds packets I have purchased and heard of in the past so many years.   It did make me so nervous when one seedling died at beginning.   Now the plants are settled and starting to cling on clear netting and flower!  Best in full sun for best result, even though they are also fine in partial shade.  Propagate by seeds or cuttings.  Annual flowering vine, not cold hardy.   All parts of plant are toxic if ingested.

我種了2棵是從原本3顆種子孵出的,1棵小苗掛掉了 😦 這些是幫花友C.J.種植繁殖的日本朝顏. 花形與色正如其名’桔梗雪花’. 基本上跟其他朝顏一樣蠻好種的.  不過eBay上賣一份種子只有5顆種子真是太貴了…  多年來自己也購買過不少少見的植物種子包或聽說過別人的購買經驗也不曾數量這麼少過.  較弱的小苗死掉時真讓我捏把冷汗緊張了一陣子,深怕辜負了花友的期望.  還好現在2株都健康也開始攀爬到網架上同時也開始開花了!  我覺得還是全日照為佳,雖然半日照也能種,不過花量會明顯不如全日照.  一年生的草花爬藤,不耐寒.  全株有毒勿食.

Mashua shoot. (Tropaeolum tuberosum) 塊莖金蓮花長出的芽與葉.

This is a very interesting root vegetable/flowering vine.  A tuberous perennial climber from South America.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Not cold hardy but it is very easy to grow.  Because it is a flowering vine, it requires a structure or support for the plant to cling on it.   Orange red and yellow flowers in mid summer to fall.  Flowers attract bees, butterflies and humming birds.  Fast growing.  USDA Zones:8-10.  Mature size:10′-12′(H)(L)X 1′-2′(W).  Easy to propagate by seeds, cuttings or bulbs.   As root vegetable, it tastes spicy and peppery when it is raw but it is fine after cooked.

這是很有意思的根莖類蔬菜/開花藤類. 原生於南美的球根多年生開花藤.   栽種於全日照到半日照處為佳.  不耐寒但很容易栽種.  因屬於爬藤類所以需要有穩固的支架以供攀爬.  橘紅帶黃色的花於仲夏到秋末盛開.  花頗吸引蜂蝶及蜂鳥.  生長快速.  耐熱不耐寒.  成熟株高10-12呎高/藤長,寬幅1-2呎. 容易以種子,扦插或球根來繁殖.   做為根莖類蔬菜的話生吃有辛辣味,煮熟辛辣味就消失.

Medicinal properties

Mashua has putative anaphrodisiac effects. It has been recorded by the Spanish chronicler Cobo that mashua was fed to their armies by the Inca Emperors, “that they should forget their wives". Studies of male rats fed on mashua tubers have shown a 45% drop in testosterone levels." –quote from wikepedia.

“用途

塊莖可以做為根莖類蔬菜食用,由於塊莖金蓮花具有強烈的味道以及被認為有降低性慾的作用,可能是它無法普的原因。

塊莖金蓮花的塊莖被認為有降低性慾的作用,實驗結果顯示,雄性老鼠在餵食塊莖後其體內的睪丸酮含量會減少百分之四十五。印加帝國的皇帝也曾利用這種特性,提供塊莖供軍隊食用,以降低軍人「想家」的念頭。

塊莖金蓮花可以用來治療腎臟病,也可以作為利尿劑使用。" — 資料摘自維基百科.

這種一年生夕顏/月光花種子是黑色的,它比白色種子的夕顏還要矮小長的不強勢且藤是柔韌的似木本. 但一樣是晚上開白色大花,有著香味.  成熟株高僅6-8呎,寬幅2-3呎.   全日照到半日照處種植為佳.  容易栽種繁殖.  繁殖以種子為主,也可以用扦插的.   有毒勿食.
