Physalis virginiana Mill.
Common Name: VIRGINIA GROUND-CHERRY
Coefficient of Conservatism: 4
Coefficient of Wetness: 5

Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Less weedy in habit than some of our species, in prairies, oak and jack pine savannas; also sandy open fields, roadsides, and railroads.

Usually the pubescence on stems and pedicels is little more than tiny retrorse bristles, giving the plant a strongly scabrous (hardly hairy) aspect.
