Choice of the seeds--Tree
Acacia confusa 台灣相思
  The seeds of the Acacia confusa Merr also serve as its leaves, and there are two types of this tree: the first has pinnately compound leaves, while the second has phyllodia, which are flattened leafstalks with parallel veins. The phyllodia for the trees that have them are narrow, somewhat sickle-like, and roughly 6-10cm long and 1cm wide. The legumes of the Acacia confusa Merr are pencil-shaped, and the tree itself has many uses: they can be planted to serve as windbreaks, and their wood is suitable for making both railroad crossties and the support beams used in mining shafts.

Eucalyptus citriodora 檸檬桉


The leaves are leathery and hang obliquely or vertically. The flower petals cohere to form a cap when the flower expands. The fruit is surrounded by a woody, cup-shaped receptacle and contains numerous minute seeds. Possibly the largest fruits--from 5 to 6 centimeters (2 to 2.5 inches) in diameter--are borne by E. macrocarpa, also known as the mottlecah, or silverleaf, eucalyptus.
The eucalypti grow rapidly, and many species attain great height. E. regnans, the giant gum tree or mountain ash of Victoria and Tasmania, attains a height of about 90 metros (300 feet) and a circumference of 7.5 m
