Ornamental/edible hot peppers have become all the rage in the gardening world in recent years. There are numerous varieties available that combine the heat and spice of hot peppers with attractive foliage, stem, flower, and fruit colors. While there are a number of varieties with purple or black foliage on the market, here's a new variety that features tri-colored leaves.
'Purple Flash Hybrid' features mostly black leaves and stems. However, the new growth has splashes of white and light purple. Combined with the purple-turning-to-red fruits, this variety is an eye-catcher in any garden. The dwarf plants only grow 1 foot tall and wide. Plant 'Purple Flash' in a bed located close to a walkway and house or in a container on a deck for easiest viewing and picking.
