Chinese Lantern Lily Plant

lantern.jpgWhat a neat looking flower. But I think it looks more like a Chef’s hat. Then again, Chinese laterns sound much better. I wonder how difficult it would be to plant one of these. The flower pictured here requires a bulb and is refer to as Chinese Latern lily.

There is actually another flower with the same name – physalis. They have flower that look like they are made of paper. And the blooms reminds me of bougainvilleas, but more orange. I have those seeds, but it won’t bloom until the second year. This plant can multiply from year to year.

The more common Chinese Lantern plant you can sow from seeds look more like the one pictured here. And Photos Ali via Flickr, who resides in Holland has a really lovely Chinese Lantern flower in bloom. Beautiful!
