Capsicum annuum ‘Black Pearl’ and you can read about it HERE. Ornamental peppers seem to be popular this year and I’ve noticed them popping up in annual flower beds.
They do work well at the front of a border reaching 20″ in height and width. The are considered annuals and even start well from seed. They aren’t picky needing little fertilizer and are somewhat drought tolerant.
This isn’t a new cultivar and has been around since 2006. It’s my experience that plants take awhile to catch on and I’m convinced this will become a landscape favorite.
