Description
Physalis alkekengi var. franchetii is better known by its culinary name of Cape Gooseberry. Tiny, creamy-white flowers appear in midsummer above oval green foliage. This hardy perennial is mainly grown for its edible berries which later develop within red, papery Chinese Lantern calyces. This vibrant autumn display brings a bright splash of colour to fading perennial borders. The stems can be cut to create wonderful decorative flower arrangements. If left on the plant the calyces will slowly skeletonize, adding ornate winter interest to your garden. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 90cm (36").


4 bare root physalis plants (10631)

How to Grow
Grow Chinese lantern plants in any moist, well drained soil, in full sun or semi shade.
More Info
Feed and water groundcherry plants regularly until plants are fully established. After flowering leave the stems intact to allow the edible fruits to develop.
