Easter Ornamental NuMex Pepper Seeds
This pepper grows into a beautiful and compact, 8-12” plant with many small clusters of 4-6 fruits on top of the plant. Colors range from lavender to light yellow and then maturing to a light orange. Peppers are spicy and edible. The clusters of peppers on the tips of each compact branch are an ever-changing array of pastel Easter colors. You will see shades of lavender, yellow, and orange all born on a plant. This plant is heat and humidity tolerant and perseveres in rain or drought and earned it the All-America Selections Award. This winning plant really turns heads and is stunning in containers or mass plantings.
