3月份開花的有串錢柳Callistemon viminalis,它是桃金孃科紅千層屬的植物,同科同屬的還有紅千層,串錢柳有枝條垂下的特性,紅色像串錢的花,很容易辨認.它曾經是"四大家花"的常種樹木成員,是公園相當普遍的樹木.

它的花期甚長,開花結果,一個跟接一個,枝條端總是掛住花串.在枝條上可以找到上一個果殼,它的種子已四散.串錢柳雖然是常種樹木,卻沒有見過有細小樹木在旁自然繁殖,看來這種外來品種未能適應香港環境.

Tall bottle-brush 串錢柳 is blossom in March. It is belong to the family Myrtaceae in which Stiff bottle-brush 紅千層 is also in the same family. It is easy to recognize as the branch of Tall bottle-brush is casting down and the flower is like a string of coins. It had been one of the ‘Top Four Garden Flowers’. They are also everywhere in the parks.  

The flower blossom period is long. Fruits are coming tightly behind the flowers continuously. The flower is always staying at the edge of the branches, and the empty fruit shells are also found there as the seeds are already spread far away. Although it is a common tree, there is not any small tree can be able to grow naturally besides it. From the above evidence, it seems that this foreign species has not fully adapted to the Hong Kong environment. 

細心數算在枝條的開花次數,在末端是盛放的花卉,在對上一節是上一次的果實,再往上數,是對上兩次留下的果殼.估不到在一個開花季節,紅千層可以連串 有三次開花.有沒有第四,第五次呢?稍後有空時,再去數過.

If we count attentively, we can see that there is the blossom flower at the end of the branch, and the fruit last time is located inner, and the former empty fruit shell is staying behind that. Tall bottle-brush is able to blossom three times continuously on the same branch in one growing season! Will there be the forth, or even the fifth times of blossom? Let’s count later!
