Product Overview

Physalis alkekengi

Bright orange papery lanterns will glow in your garden! Ideal for fresh and dried arrangements.

Chinese lantern, also known as winter cherry, is a very popular plant for dried arrangements, and for good reasons—brilliant color, unique shape, easy to grow, and long-lasting. A striking backdrop to fall/winter decorations, as well as late summer color for borders, beds, and containers. Though perennial in USDA zones 3–9, it is often grown as an annual because it heartily spreads by self-sowing or by underground roots. Caution: Most parts of this plant are toxic if ingested.

Variety Info

Flowers are small, white and star-shaped, with calyces that enlarge and change from green to red-orange in late summer/fall

Sowing Inside

RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date.

Sowing Outside

1 to 2 weeks before your average last frost date, or in summer up to 2 months before your average first fall frost date.
