Chinese Lantern Seeds
Sometimes known as Strawberry Ground Cherry, our Chinese Lantern features delicate flowers with the tell-tale orange seed pod that looks like a glowing orange lantern. As it can be aggressive, many gardeners recommend confining its growth. The pods dry well and are excellent in dried floral arrangements.
