Physalis alkekengi (Chinese Lantern Plant)

Physalis alkekengi (Chinese Lantern Plant)

This is an attractive spreading green ground cover that is planted not for its foliage or its flower but for the festive orange paper lanterns that grace the stems in late summer into fall. Leafs are removed leaving attractive orange paper lanterns to be dried on stems for fall arrangements. Chinese lantern need shade in our area and water to produce large shapely lanterns. Word of caution this plant will spread from thick underground runners, give some room to spread, then use a shovel to sever runners and remove unwanted spreading.
