Hi, I bought a pack a Chinese lantern plant bare roots ............ quite cheap from a pound shop last year ........i planted them and they came through and looked like the picture below ...........which is actually a picture of them this year ......they had no flowers on them last year and I'm a bit concerned the same will happen this year but also do you think this is actually the leaf of a Chinese lantern plant?????? I went to stake them today with a cane and the leaf actually stung me
Do you think I'm cultivating a weed for two years or do you think this is a Chinese lantern plant :/
Not a chinese lantern. If you had them and they'd rooted they would have had small white flowers in July and lanterns follow.. The actual lanterns are lovely but the plant does spread, even under a flagged path.
