Plant Features

Calico Ornamental Pepper Plant is grown mostly for its foliage! The flashy display put on by this appealing, well-branched plant produces tri-colored foliage the most amazing combination of lavender, cream and green. The fruit, as it appears, will be glossy and black, maturing to red, but is not recommended for eating; it is considered extremely hot! Extraordinarily drought and heat tolerant, this eye-catching plant can be grown in mixed container plantings or in your garden as an attractive accent.

Companion Planting: Geranium, Marigold
