Product Information

A dwarf form of Chinese Lanterns or Cape Gooseberry which makes a stunning site in autumn when the low, upright stems are covered in bright orange lanterns. A perennial which dies back to the ground through winter emerging in spring with limy green, triangular leaves and small white flowers in summer. The flowers fall and the seed pods swell and colour for the autumn, drying on the plants if you can resist picking them for arrangements! Excellent in shade or part sun and most soil types. Will tolerant dry soil once established.

Please dont panic if a plant looks different to the image on the Website. It is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just resting before it bursts into action in the coming season.

Plants do look very different throughout the year. Particularly in winter, many shrubs will look rather bare and stick-like and perennial plants may not even be showing through the soil.
