Seeds By Design: Ornamental Pepper ‘Black Olive’ plant

May 15, 2013 -  By

Bred by Seeds By Design, the Ornamental Pepper ‘Black Olive’ plant is a 2012 All-America Selections winner. Judges said this entry was a standout, especially in Southern gardens where heat was a major presence during the 2011 trials. All season long, this plant kept its upright habit with draping leaves and dark purple/black fruit, which appeared in small clusters along the stems. As summer progresses, the fruits mature to red, giving contrast against the dark purple foliage and bright purple flowers. It’s great as a 20-in. border plant or a color splash for containers.
