Ornamental Pepper (Capsicum Annuum mix) 70 seeds (#1685)
Decorative annual potted plant.
Small fruits with shiny skin, of different colors depending on the ripening phase, appear in summer and are a decoration until late autumn.
It is an easy to grow favorite that the birds will also appreciate.
Can be pruned to shape or to control height. Mild winter will not freeze them to the ground but it can be helpful to prune the back anyway to refresh if the plant is several years old.
Beautiful when used in mass plantings.
