Chinese Lantern Plant (Physalis Alkekengi) 150 seeds (#1327)

Popular for the papery bright-orange lantern pods that develop around the ripening fruit, these are often cut and used for Thanksgiving and Halloween arrangements.
Plants are aggressive spreaders, and best kept out of the perennial border so they don't take over. Also can be grown in tubs.
Small white flowers appear in midsummer, over a bushy mound of coarse green leaves. Pods are green at first, but should be harvested as soon as the orange colour develops, the leaves stripped then stems hung upside down to dry in a warm dark room.
Physalis can be planted in either full sun or partial shade. It is best to plant them on the sunniest side of your home but in an area that isn’t exposed to full sun for more than 8 hours a day.
Because Physalis can become invasive, it is best to plant it in a pot or in a garden that’s contained. We recommend buying a large, plain terra cotta pot to place with your other herbs and flowers to give the landscaping texture, height and a punch of color.
