Chinese Lantern Wannabes

Thursday, January 15, 2009

When I spotted these in Bermuda I immediately thought they were a plant commonly called "Chinese Lanterns". Turns out they're not. That's the challenge with trying to identify plants by their flowers. Professional protocol starts with leaf structure since many plants have similar flowers. By the way, I still don't have the name for this unique plant.
