Product Description

Apple of Peru 
Nicandra physalodes

This soaring, easy to grow foliage plant is one of our most hardworking fillers on the farm. Stems are loaded with glowing green lanterns that appear after their periwinkle blossoms drop, and the plant resembles a giant tomatillo with blue flowers. A great addition to the landscape, each plant produces buckets of bouquet material from mid summer to autumn.

How to Grow: 
Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
Harvest once seed pods have formed, and remove the foliage so that the lanterns are more visible. Expect a vase life of 7 days.
