This All-American Selections winner is colorful and versatile and easy to grow! Dark midnight leaves, with flashes of bright emerald green are topped by bright purple flowers from midsummer through fall. The clusters of small, round peppers that follow, mature from green to black and ultimately crimson red. Flowers, fruit and foliage are stunning in containers, as a border plant or as a cut flower in mixed bouquets. Fruit is edible and HOT!
