Sweet Chestnut– Asiatic species (Castanea) 亞洲栗

Medium to large tree for its sweet nuts and beautiful wood!  Long life span. It is fairly easy to grow from seeds.  Best growing in full sun location.   Tiny creamy white flowers on flower stems in spring and nuts mature in late fall.  This European type of sweet chestnut has slightly smaller nuts and duller, browner nut color than Chinese sweet chestnut.  If you have good size land, you should grow them.  Very hardy and low maintenance.  USDA Zones:4-11. Mature size:40′(H)/(W).   Propagate by seeds, cuttings or grafting.  Good food source and medicinal.

歐洲栗是歐洲的鄉土栗樹品種,種植分佈相當廣.  樹齡很長.  很容易栽種.  春開黃白色小花密生在花梗上,結的果實於秋末成熟.   這屬中大型樹種,主以種來取其可食栗子及其均勻美麗木紋的硬木材,它是落葉喬木.  其栗子比中國種的甜栗個頭要稍小些,顏色也稍暗淡深褐些.  它的耐熱耐寒低維護且多用途,若是你有夠大的土地不妨考慮種植.  它很強健且低維護.  主以種子,扦插或嫁接等法來繁殖. 極具食用及藥用價值.

Double Autumn Crocus (Colchicum ‘Water Lily’) in early spring. Bulb is growing leaves. Time to fertilize the plant for fall blooming. 重瓣秋水仙 ‘睡蓮’初春長葉要施肥養肥些,秋天才有花可開.

Very hardy flowering bulb.   This is blooming in autumn with lavender pink double flowers, growing large foliage in spring and summer.   Best growing in full sun location in organic soil.  Flowers do look alike water lily.  🙂   USDA Zones:4-9. Mature size:5″(H) X 3″-6″(W).  Propagate by bulbs/corms or offsets.  Toxic if ingested, direct contact may cause skin irritation.

非常強健的球根花卉是少見的秋天開花的植物的一種. 秋開重瓣粉紫色的花,春夏長大片的葉子.  最好是栽種在全日照處用有機沃土來栽培. 花形真的很像睡蓮. 🙂  很耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高5吋,寬幅3-6吋.  以無性繁殖來進行,球根/子球或側芽來繁殖.  有毒勿食,直接接觸的話可能引起皮膚不適.
