Chinese Lantern (physalis alkekengi) is a fascinating plant. First, there are little white flowers that develop into fruit protected by larger, papery pods – green at first, but later becoming bright orange, perfectly resembling little Chinese Lanterns
I have these plants for Mike and Yuting's garden: Seed pod from Chinese lanterns. As the beautiful orange lantern decays it leaves a weblike cocoon which finally releases the seed at the right time. Evidence of design.
