Unusual Seed Give Away!

This is a close up of my “Trifetti” ornamental pepper plant.

I originally received the Trifetti seeds years ago when pregnant with my first child. Kenosha County was conducting a research project and they were offering free seeds for gardeners who agreed to grow them according to their directions, and then fill out a series of questionnaires regarding the progress of the plants, how easy they were to grow, etc. Well, soon after I planted the seeds I had my daughter, and in the midst of adjusting to life with a newborn I never did fill out any of the surveys, and I still feel guilty about it to this day!

This is one of my all time favorite plants, even though there is nothing worth pressing on this plant! The leaves are a confetti mixture of green, purple, and a bit of cream, and the peppers are even more amazing. They start out as beautiful deep purple blossoms, which turn into small purple peppers…but not for long. They soon turn cherry red, and finally a fiery deep orange. I never fail to get compliments on this unusual plant, which does equally well in containers as it does tucked into my herb or vegetable gardens. I sometimes even put a plant or two in my flower gardens for a burst of unexpected color.

In a vain attempt to rectify my lack of filling out those surveys years ago, I am offering a packet of free Tri-fetti Ornamental Seeds to one of my four beloved readers. No strings attached. Just leave a comment, and I’ll draw a name next week. Enjoy!

Hi Elizabeth, Your blog is bookmarked under my favorites. I'm hoping to purchase a flower press and a journal from you soon--they may end up being on my Christmas wish list at this rate though. The pepper plant sounds beautiful. It's a shame that you can't press anything from it. Hope I'm one of the lucky winners in the drawing.

Can I grow this indoors? Well, I guess it doesn't matter, they sound neat.
