Notes:

Walter, I heard you say ground cherry doesn’t grow in Georgia. However, this showed up in my yard and was perfectly happy there. Did I mis-identify it? I used it as a trap crop for Tomato hornworms.

    Physalis, yes… but I think tomatillo. Nice looking caterpillars… As a butterfly gardener… I’m all about the caterpillars… Even the manduca sexta (pictured above) turns into a cool critter… http://www.stonethegardener.com/wp/2012/07/gardening-for-butterflies/
