Hi all! I've been looking for perennial ground cherry seeds for quite some time. Either Physalis heterophylla or P. Virginiana. Although they are native in my area, I haven't been able to locate wild specimens yet to save the seeds. Would anyone know where to get some of these seeds? Thanks!
Veronica I know what you are talking about. I will post something on the forum this summer if i find them again. They are easily zone 3 hardy, but in a garden they are like quack grass. If you helped them start in a dry thin grassy area like a road side bank, so they get sun and not smothered out, one could like their perennial habit. Maybe a orchard ,if sunny enough. Like many hard to control plants they can be hard to establish were they need to be. In their natural habitat they seem to behave nicely.
