A Physalis from Nathan in SC

Posted on |

Soft, velvet to the touch leaves. Partially shaded area near an oak tree. I am near folly beach on Sol Legare island.


this is a ground cherry, probably Physalis viscosa subsp. maritima, found mostly near the coast. It is in the Nightshade family, Solanaceae.
