I had a couple 2 1/2 gallon pails available with potting mix in them. A viola plant died off and the bunching onions did not come up in the other bucket. I decided to go and get a couple pepper plants today at Home Depot garden center and spotted these peppers. I do not ever remember seeing purple peppers. These should go very nicely in my 2 1/2 gallon pails.
I just pulled up the info on them and I am quite excited about the random purchase. Especially the size of the plant to fit the pails and thrives in southern climates.
Purple Bell Sweet Pepper
"Plant size: 18 to 24 inches tall, 18 to 20 inches wide"
"This pepper tolerates high heat and humidity and thrives in Southern gardens."
