Oh that's amazing Andrew......I really wanted some of the chinese lanterns but mine didn't flower!

Yes adoons, you are right. I grow the variety 'Zwerg' which is half the height of the type plant but just as invasive. I don't think it is native so South Africa so it must be a garden escape

love these, must remember to put them on that ever increasing list, such great Autumn/winter interest, and i belive the are also eadable, not that i would eat them, but means safty for Brooke.

Yes but they can be invasive so don't put them near anything delicate or precious

to be honest that is the main reason i have'nt put any in yet Andrew lol but looking at this pic, they are just soooooo pretty.

One possible solution is take a large plastic flower pot, cut off the bottom and sink it in the ground with the rim at soil level. Plant the physalis inside and it can't spread too far. It will need lifting and dividing about every three years otherwise it becomes too congested and starved.
Any plant that has 'wandering' tendencies can be treated in this way - it's how I grow my mint

thanks for the tip Andrew, i might just try that.
