The seed pods of the Shoo Fly, Nicandra physalodes, are almost as beautiful as their flowers. Notorious self seeders, some might view these purple papery lanterns with a sigh or even a scream. However I am looking forward to them spreading themselves about, they are long lasting, trouble free and floriferous. A member of the “good cop, bad cop” family Solanaceae, which contains both potato and deadly nightshade. They hale from Peru, yes just like Paddington Bear, hence another of their common names, Apple of Peru. Did you think I was going to say The Paddington Plant? I nearly did.
