Chinese Lantern (Physalis Alkekengi) -
Chinese Lantern flower seed produces an ornamental flower that has an orange seed pod that looks like glowing orange paper lanterns.
Physalis Alkekengi perennial plants have white flowers in the summer that will be replaced by green seed pods that will eventually turn orange or red in the early fall.
Chinese Lantern plants are often grown for drying as the orange seed pods dry well and can also be used in dried floral arrangements.
