Chinese lantern, also known as winter cherry, is a very popular plant for dried arrangements, and for good reasons—brilliant color, unique shape, easy to grow, and long-lasting. A striking backdrop to fall/winter decorations, as well as late summer color for borders, beds, and containers. Though perennial in USDA zones 3–9, it is often grown as an annual because it heartily spreads by self-sowing or by underground roots. Caution: Most parts of this plant are toxic if ingested.

    Trying to be fair and objective; After complaining about the free shipping description, I did get free shipping. Is this a “Red Venus Fly Trap “Akai Ryu” VFT”? Time will tell. This plant looks like the picture, after a month of no care. No traps, no new growth. It is in serious need of TLC and hopefully will recover with proper care. I bought it for it being a different variety, but have gotten far better plants at Walmart for a third of the price.
