Physalis alkekengi, also known as Chinese Lantern, Strawberry Groundcherry, or Winter Cherry, is a distinctive and ornamental plant that is widely cultivated in temperate regions around the world. Its edible red berries are enclosed in a bright orange to red papery covering that resembles Chinese lanterns, making it a beautiful addition to any garden. This perennial herbaceous plant grows to around 40-60cm tall, with spirally arranged leaves and white flowers that give way to the papery fruit. The dried fruit is used in traditional medicine for its diuretic, antiseptic, liver corrective, and sedative properties. Easy to grow from seed in a greenhouse, this plant is a popular choice for those looking to add some unique visual interest to their garden.
