Japanese Lantern Plant 10th August

Our Japanese Lantern plant has flowered and now has green lanterns on it,
they will turn orange and red soon..
here it is earlier in the season...11th June...

and here on 7th August...

as you can see some of the leaves have dropped off
due to lack of water and space,
I am going to transfer to much bigger pot soon.

they are turning orange now..
TIP: if you keep them in the garden and not confined
to a pot they will 'take over',
the roots spread underground and new plants pop up every where.
