Re: Just popped up in a pot of soil...never had one prior anywhere on property!

Hi, thanks for your help.

So far, i can say it is not a vine. It never showed any vine characteristics, always budding and growing with branchy tree-like characteristics. Nor did it have a rhizome root structure, so, not a chinese according to botanical specs...

Secondly, on our street a few doors down, there are several large Chinese Lantern Trees that are large, and have lanterns that change colors throughout seasons. My mystery plant died at first hard frost, and never had any color change on lanterns or leaves. Physalis Alkekengi is a perrenial here in Zone 7, and has color changes. So, not exactly that either.

My plant had more of a "bonsai appearence", if that helps. So, i'm still in search of the exact variety...any further info very appreciated!
