THE LANGUAGE OF PHYSALIS

Physalis, also known as the Chinese lantern is a perennial plant which belongs to a family of more than 80 different species including ground cherry and tomatillo.

The plant has been a favourite of Easterners and Westerners for centuries and is indigenous from southeastern Europe to Japan. They are very identifiable plants with large red/orange paper-like leaves covering it's fruit - resembling paper lanterns.

PHYSALIS IN BOUQUETS

These hero flowers are a wonderful addition for autumn bouquets as well as on their own in a vase. We particularly like using them for Halloween.


This year we decided to create a beautiful Autumn Wreath with physalis on it, and we are obsessed!

PHYSALIS FOR WEDDINGS AND EVENTS

Physalis is less commonly used within wedding arrangements but is a beautiful and unique flower to choose for autumnal events. Our contracts team also find them a beautiful stem to use within private homes and hotels for a show-stopping, yet simple look!
