Author 'Nicoledesplat' (Id 182745 ) : This Physalis alkekengi var, franchetti is a perennial innocent-looking, with its long stalks and slender are inclined to bend, and its foliage is a delicate and lush.
Its discrete star-shaped flowers cream-colored turn into 'lanterns', hence its second name 'lanterns japanese' parcheminées red bright orange that contain edible berries.
The lanterns cut fresh are an interior design lovely and they will last all winter if dried.
Love-in-cage thrives in full sun in any soil, except very poor soils, but it becomes downright obtrusive if it is installed in a land humifère of good quality, because its rhizomes sneak into the least space free, but to me, it does, I see no problem.
In this montage, as I like to watch the evolution and development of my plants, I tried to represent the birth of this Love-in-cage until the end of his life .
