What a showy flower!  This easy to grow perennial is native in Western Australia.   Although you can see them more common now growing for cut flower use and as garden plants.  Red and green flowers in spring and set seeds easily.  Flowers attract bees, butterflies and birds.  Plants prefer full sun to partial shade.  Foliage looks like Iris.  USDA Zones:9-11.  Mature size:2′-3′(H) x 1′(W).  Propagation by seeds or dividing the plants.

好個紅綠搭配的花!  它是原生於西澳的多年生草花,   雖然有不少種袋鼠草可是它們的顏色對比都沒有它紅綠對比的強烈,多人工栽培用做庭園觀賞和切花用.   在原生地它是鳥媒花,庭園栽種的話最好是能人工授粉來結子繁殖.      春天開花,花吸引蜂蝶及鳥類.  喜全日照到半日照溫暖的環境. 葉片像是鳶尾科的葉.  容易栽種.  成熟株高2-3呎,寬約1呎.  以種子或分株來繁殖.

Mistletoe cactus (Rhipsalis baccifera) is a rarely seen succulent, it belongs to the Cactus family but it is not prickly.  Because it is native in tropical warm regions so it must be indoor over winter if you live in a cold climate.  It prefers growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist but well drained soil or medium.  Some of this genus are more shade tolerant.  This makes a nice house plant.  It is easier and faster to propagate by cuttings.

絲葦喜溫暖,一般而言它不是那麼常見的仙人掌科植物,由於沒有刺+長速慢,很適合作成吊盆.  若你所在的氣候區較冷,要記得搬進室內過冬.  雖然也能從種子繁殖不過速度和難易度上還是以扦插方式為主.  這屬的植物的光照需求較為耐蔭,全日照到半日照的環境都可以栽種.
