Our hands-down favorite, the Sangria has beautifully colored 1" - 1.5" peppers that produce through autumn. We treat it as a border plant, and it always makes it through our hot oklahoma summers unscathed. It is an annual here, but I have seen a volunteer once or twice.

I grow many ornamental peppers but this is the BEST! People notice it right away and are fascinated by the many colors of the peppers. I love it and am growing many more to share with my friends.laurie K., 12 years ago
