Ornamental Pepper 'Black Pearl' have been greeting us at our back door all summer long.
The peppers were a deep shiny black, until recently when they've turned this bright red. I love them and hope to find them again next year.
I think they'd look fetching with some airy green Asparagus Fern, or rising above some creeping golden thyme.
Their deep true black leaves don't lighten or show areas of green at all: this is a true black plant and definitely one of my favorites.
