Ornamental Pepper

Striking when in full fruit, ornamental pepper (Capsicum annuum) is a shrubby little plant with a tropical appeal. Most varieties that are bred for ornamental use hold their peppers in a upright position above the foliage.

LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS: USDA hardiness zones: 2 through 11

CARE INSTRUCTIONS WATER: Water the plants often enough to keep their soil evenly moist. Applying water slowly allows soil to absorb the moisture without letting it run off.

FERTILIZER: Fertilize with a slow-release fertilizer early in the growing season.

FLOWERING: Bares miniature peppers. These are not eatable.

SOIL: Grow in rich, well drained soil.

DISEASE: Aphids and spider mites may become a problem. Spray the plants with insecticidal soap or neem oil spray according to the product's label instructions to control those insects.
