This tropical dwarf version of Papyrus has smaller flower heads and stiff flower head like a green mum/pom-pom flower.  Native in Africa and Madagascar. Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in pond.  A nice marginal pond plant!  Very small green brown flowers in mid summer to early fall.   Suitable growing indoors. USDA Zones:8-11. Good for cut flower.  Mature size:2′(H) X 2′-3′(W).  Propagate by seeds/root with flower head/division. — It is a very interesting way to propagate by flower head!

這種喜熱的矮性的紙莎草有較小的花球(花序)及直立堅挺的如綠色菊花的花球.  原生於非洲及鄰近的馬達加斯加.  容易栽種.  最好栽種於全日照到半日照處的水池裡.  很棒的水邊植物! 仲夏到秋季間花球末端長著綠褐色的花,花後結子.  它頗適合種在室內容器中.  喜熱不耐寒.  適合切花.  成熟株高2呎,寬幅2-3呎.  以種子/花球扦插/分株來繁殖.–使用花球來繁殖真的是個很有意思的無性繁殖方式!

Medicinal.  Whole plant can be animal feed.  Excellent in aquarium tank, big bowl or any pond.

多年生的水生草花.  可愛的白色有毛邊小花出水面而綻放,通常花期於春末到夏季溫暖的時節,於早晨開放到近中午小花就會凋謝. 要拍照的人要記得! 😉 葉如睡蓮浮於水面上,一葉配一花.  花期很長持續一整個夏季約有4個月.  強健易栽種.  最好種在全日照水裡有底泥中.  喜熱不耐寒.    成熟植株的寬幅可達6呎.    繁殖可以種子,葉插法或分株法來進行.  熱帶地區可能變成強勢植物.  可食用及藥用. 全株可當飼料來餵養牲口.  很適合種在水族箱,大碗或池塘.

Water Hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes)鳳眼藍(布袋蓮)

It is a fast growing floating aqua plant which flower in summer with hyacinth like flower, full sun. It is not cold tolerant here. It is either treated as annual or needed to bring in the house over winter. It is better not growing in open water since it is invasive. Sorry it is not a good photo because it is end of the season.

它是生長快速的浮水植物,夏季開類似像風信子一樣的花,全日照. 在北美不耐寒,可當成一年生或要用容器裝水室內養著過冬. 由於生長強勢,最好不要養在開放的水域. 花快謝前勉強拍的,照的不好,請包涵.
