A Fantastic Foliage™ and a Hot Summer Survivors selection!

Well-branched Calico shows off high-appeal, strongly variegated foliage in a stable colour pattern of purple, cream and green, highlighted by glossy black fruit. The compact and rounded plants are uniform in size across the crop for easy production. Extremely heat-tolerant Calico is great for landscaping and also adds an exciting accent to mixed containers. Well-suited to premium packs, 4 to 6-in./10 to 15-cm pots and gallons.

NOTE: Fruit is extremely hot and not recommended for eating.
