The official name of this plant is Lantern Cherry. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.
Not to be confused with Grass Lantern from Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.

Lantern Cherry (灯笼草; pinyin: dēnglóng cǎo) is the sixth plant obtained in the Sky City in Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is the flying equivalent of Plantern, but unlike Plantern, its light will become weaker over time, then disappear. It can't be eaten nor destroyed. However, this plant does not affect the fog in Dark Ages. It is an environment modifier.

Origins

Groundcherries

It is based on a groundcherry, more specifically Physalis alkekengi, commonly known as Chinese lantern or strawberry groundcherry.

Almanac entry

灯笼草 (Lantern Cherry)
Sun cost: 25

TOUGHNESS: Typical
RECHARGE: Fast

灯笼草能发现隐形状态下的僵尸

特点:持续一段时间且不能被攻击
植物特征:红色植物、飞行植物
灯笼草很快就与火炬树桩和火龙草成了形影不离的好朋友,他们自称为“火焰三剑客”。不过夏威夷风情酒廊似乎不太敢招待他们三个,老板可不愿意再看见烧焦的酒桌。

    In English:

    Lantern Cherry makes invisible zombies in visible state.

    Special: It shines for some time and can't be attacked.

    Plant feature: red plant, flying plant

    Lantern Cherry, Torchwood, and Snapdragon became inseparable friends, and called themselves "The three flame musketeers". But the Tiki Lounge is scared of serving them, because its owner does not want to see burnt tables again.

Upgrades

Plant Food effect

When fed with Plant Food, Lantern Cherry shows all invisible zombies on screen. However, he still doesn’t light up the fog.

Costumed

It makes all sun-producing plants on screen activate their Plant Food ability, as well as doing it’s own non-costumed Plant Food ability.

Strategies

It can make all zombies hidden by the Arbiter-X's force field visible and targetable by plants and cannot be destroyed. However, the Arbiter-X does not hide itself and there are no Area-of-effect aerial plants so there is usually no slots for this plant and the player is better off destroying Arbiter-Xs with raw power.

It can also be used in Dark Ages. It makes Bandit Zombie visible, when he drinks his potion. However, don't try to use it for lighting the fog, as this feature wasn't added to this plant.

The only thing that redeems this plant is it does activate other sun-producing plants' abilities using its costumed Plant Food ability, but there will be a scarce amount of Plant Food in Sky City levels, and the player may need a Power Lily, which decreases the number of usable slots.
