Nantou County, Taiwan –


With the advent of the autumn, Formosan Firethorn in the forest has gradually matured and its ripe round berries are just as bright red pearls hung on the branches. These bright red ripe berries appear to be more dazzling in the green forest.

Pyracantha koidzumii, also known as Formosan Firethorn, is a species of plant in the Rosaceae family. It is endemic to Taiwan. The shrub can reach about 1~2 metres in height, and the flowering season is between March and April. Formosan Firethorn is noted for its tiny white flowers that looks like snow covers all over the tree during the blooming period. The bright red berries are ornamental and precious fruits as well as Formosan Yuhina, Bugun Liocichla and other bird species’ favourite food.

Formosan Firethorn is often used as ornamental plant that is suitable for planting, cottage breeding, or high-pressure growing in the gardens, potted plants or along the hedges.

森林裡的紅色珍珠 狀元紅

范綱武/南投縣

  時序進入秋天,森林裡的狀元紅已經逐漸成熟,圓圓紅透的狀元紅果實,就如同紅色鮮豔的珍珠一般,掛在枝頭,在一片翠綠的森林中更顯得耀眼。

  狀元紅屬於薔薇科,別名是「台東火刺木」,原產地在台東、花蓮等地,株高約1~2公尺,花期在三~四月間,花呈現白色五瓣小花,盛開時猶如滿株覆雪,也相當獨特。果實成熟期約為十~隔年二月,豔紅色的球形果實,是觀果珍品,也是冠羽畫眉、藪鳥等鳥類喜愛的食物。

  狀元紅常用來當作是庭院、盆栽或綠籬,適合用播種、扦插或高壓法來繁殖,春至夏季為適期。(攝影/范綱武)
