Lampion flower…..Japanese lantern

DSC_0024

While walking through my brother’s wintery garden in Germany I discovered this precious plant, called Lampion flower. It’s been given several names like winter cherry or Japanese- and Chinese Lantern.

It likes to grow at winter times in a frosty climate, it’s very fragile and feels like silky paper.

In Japan it’s seeds are used as part of the Bon festival as offerings to guide the souls of deceased.

After it’s full blooming, the Lampion flower changes  into a beautiful withered skeleton.

Usually it’s fruit is hidden inside, but not seen in this one.
