Dutch Hyacinths at home 荷蘭風信子

鄰居送的風信子已經漸漸地長大,隨著開花成長,香氣日益濃郁,香味幾乎快傳遍了整個公寓。剛收到時,是六個大大的球狀的種球包裹在泥土裡,風信子屬於球莖植物,種球外包覆著一層深紫色的薄膜、青翠的綠葉,看上去就像洋蔥一般。幾天後,莖漸漸長高,含有綠色菱形狀的肉質,再幾天后後,花便一朵朵的開出。花瓣摸上去就如同石蓮的葉子一般厚,有一種摸著橡皮的感覺,柔軟舒服。六個球莖分別開出了三個淡紫色、三個粉紅色和三個白色的風信子,相當美麗,因為深厚的花瓣也少有薄花瓣般的脆弱感和焦黃的枯萎狀。

香味的濃烈比室內香水的效果更好,若是有帶窗、帶陽光的衛生間其實相當適合擺放風信子,美觀又好聞。風信子一週大概澆兩次水,只要使泥土微溼就可以了,置放在有光照卻避免強光照射的地方便會很好生長。

風信子原產於亞洲西南部、土耳其南部和中部、敘利亞西北部、黎巴嫩和以色列北部,16 世紀時從土耳其和伊朗傳到歐洲,Leonhardt Rauwolf,一名德國醫生,於 1573 年訪問土耳其時,收集並帶回了一些風信子回到歐洲。自 16 世紀下半葉開始被商業化的種植,因為它的香味和觀賞價值在 18、 19 世紀時很受歡迎。今天,荷蘭和英國是主要的風信子商業化種植地。
