General Description
The ornamental pepper 'Sangria' produces upright clusters of fiery-hued but mildly flavored fruit. Although its fruits are edible, this cultivar was developed for ornamental use.
First cultivated and selected by Native Americans thousands of years ago, peppers are bushy, brittle-stemmed annual vegetables with thin oval leaves and small five-petaled flowers. The dull-white blooms of 'Sangria' are followed by erect, slender, 2-inch (5-cm) fruits that ripen from green to purple to orange to red. The arching stems of this compact cultivar form a mound about 12 inches (30 cm) high and slightly wider.
Full sun, warmth, ample spacing, and fertile well-drained soil are required for peppers to grow and produce well. The fruits of 'Sangria' begin to color about 80 days after seedlings are planted out. Use this compact-growing, showy-fruited F1 hybrid in containers, annual beds, and mixed borders for several months of warm-season color. Fruiting may continue until hard frost, or into winter in frost-free conditions. Vascular wilts and fungal diseases can be a problem in subpar conditions.

Pinch off early flower buds to encourage stronger branching and roots. Heavily fruiting plants may break apart under the weight if not staked for support. Care must be taken with plants grown by nurseries for ornamental purposes; they may have been treated with pesticides or other chemicals not suitable for edible plants.
Growing Peppers:
Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil
Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil – and make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.
At Planting Time:
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 2″ 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

Took 4 months to come in half dead.

Plants were crushed and 3 out of 5 plants were dead. One more looks like it’s about to die and 1 plant is making it. Definitely won’t be using this website again. Plants were ordered in April as a Mother’s Day present. Customer service is also a joke and non responsive.

No idea!

I never received my order. I emailed and called multiple times to ask about my order. I never got even a response back. I had to ask my bank for a refund.
