Also known as bladder cherry, winter cherry or Chinese lantern, the Physalis Alkekengi (in Japanese “hōzuki”) experiences a truly incredible transformation: it starts blooming during winter and dries during spring.

Once it is dried, the bright red fruit nestled inside can be seen.. really amazing!
