Physalis crassifolia var. infundibularis

Although Physalis crassifolia occurs in the southwestern United States, this variety is, as far as I know, restricted to Baja California. This variety differs from var. crassifolia in shape and orientation of the flowers; those of var. infundibularis are erect and, as the name suggests, infundibulariform, while those of var. crassifolia are nodding and rotate.
