Day 187 - Shiver Me Timbers... It's the Black Pearl!

Capsicum 'Black Pearl' is one of my FAVORITE ornamental peppers and black foliage plants. Tough against the elements (will take full or part sun), doesn't need to be babied (it will forgive you if you forget to water), and produces screaming red and black pearl shaped peppers. But unless your mouth is lined with asbestos, don't try eating those peppers. My memory of that experience still makes me break out in sweat.
Paired here with dwarf dahlias, this was one of my low maintenance planters last year.

Your Black pearl does make a nice container plant.

I love to grow ornamental peppers and you have just reminded me to plant my seeds.
