Description

Midnight Fire Ornamental Pepper

The dark-black foliage makes the perfect backdrop for the shiny purple pods that mature to red at the end of the season. A wonderful companion plant for other late-summer and fall container and flower bed displays. Thrives during the heat of summer when grown in full sun and well-drained soils. The fruits are ornamental, not for consumption. The flowers attract a number of pollinating insects.
