Weeds in Gardening and Landscaping
Native plants and California-friendlyAnimals carry seeds to new areas -- true. People carry plants and seeds to new areas -- true. But we can also be smart about plant migration. Some species take over the entire landscape...and some are tame and useful in their new home.
It is time we take the time to understand the impact of our
pleasurable urges when it comes to nature. We love new flowers...and
exotic animals...and luscious fruit from the tropics, but sometimes
our eagerness for "new and exotic" turns a helpful plant or animal
into a nuisance...and sometimes even a destructive "invasive." How
does this happen?
***Etymological Biology of Spider Lily, Lycoris radiata.***by Siro Kurita, Faculty of Science,
Chiba University, Japan
It is necessary for human beings to study widely on the nature of an intimate species from every aspect such as morphology, systematics, ecology, genetics, physiology, economy, literature, etymology, evolution and so on, for understanding and to realize the great importance of lives, the miracles of the universe.
I apply this synthetic research to an arbitrary species from Universal Biology, and the present article is an example of a section of UB of Lycoris radiata (Higanbana).
Lycoris is an amaryllidaceous genus endemic to Sino-Japanese flora. L.radiata is a very common and showy species distributed in Japan and China. All plants collected in Japan are triploid sterile and the diploid fertile taxon only found in China. Therefore, it is assumed that Japanese plants were introduced from China in the Prehistoric Age by human traffic and became naturalized.
However, the date of introduction is not yet decided. In this article, I try to determine the period of introduction analyzing the vernaculars. More than 1,000 vernaculars are recorded for this bulbous plant eaten when a famine visited.

ENJOYBeauty is in the eye of the beholder. Your attitude can make all the difference in how you treat plants. If you take the time to enjoy the wonder of design in a leaf or a bud, you will marvel at the gentle tenacity inherent to life.
LEARNNative plants and native wildlife live together in a harmony that balanced itself over thousands of years. When we introduce exotic or foreign plants or animals, we upset that balance and it takes many decades for the balance to restore itself. Learning about this delicate balance makes you a better steward of your land and your neighborhood
MAKE A CHOICEWhat can you do that will restore native habitat for the native wildlife in your community?
MAKE A CHANGEWhat WILL you do today to move toward your goal? Even one small action today makes a difference. And you can add a little tomorrow and the next day... Together we will restore our environment in our community and around the world.
