ORNAMENTAL PEPPER , Chilly Chili (LIVE PLANT)
Great in Pots, and Garden Beds, Ideal in a sunny pot but also tough enough and drought-hardy enough to do well in any sunny garden bed, including out front.
The first family-friendly ornamental pepper with exceptional garden performance. Chilly Chili, as the name implies, has non-pungent fruit. The “heat” was bred out of the peppers, which is perfect for households with children who like to explore their environment. The fruit changes color from yellow to orange and matures at red. Extremely heat-tolerant, Chilly Chili will provide garden color during southern summers. Pepper plants can grow about a foot tall and spread 6-10 inches. The petite 2-inch peppers can be used as clever ornamental garnishes on salads or with ethnic entrees
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2â³ thick layer of compost.
Space plants 12-18 inches apart, in rows 3 feet apart, or in a 3 gallon pot for an indoor house plant. Also makes a great back drop for other annuals or use a border or divider in grader areas. Very pungent! Eatable; Ornamental - C.annuum
