Unique variety produces fiery orange fruit resembling the tissue paper globes known as Chinese Lanterns. Hardy and easy to grow, this variety adds an attractive spot of color for borders and bouquets or dried arrangements. The inconsequential flowers in spring are white, but the fruit that follows is highly ornamental. As an aggressive grower, be sure to plant where it has room to spread.

    I bought this at a great price. What impressed me, was that I received an e-mail when the item shipped,with an estimated arrival date, and the plant arrived in that time frame. Planted it, and within a matter of days,I knew I had a healthy plant...a totally positive experience all the way, and I will definitely buy from Spring Hill again.
