Southern Gardening: Ornamental vegetables perform landscape duty
After reading about ornamental vegetables several years ago, I became interested in expanding the selection of ornamental bedding plants in my landscape. Then I saw a planting of ornamental peppers.
I am a true “chili head” with a passion for hot peppers, and I have even made an apple and habanero wine. I have grown jalapeño, habanero and the like as bedding plants, as many of the extremely hot peppers produce very colorful fruit.
It’s only recently that I have grown the true ornamental-type peppers. They come in a variety of sizes, and some have green-purple foliage or multicolored fruit. Ornamental peppers are a unique way to add interest to your garden.
