Fun Facts: The Peperomia cap...
The Peperomia caperata 'Rosso' resembles a pepper plant and related to the black pepper plant. The green leaves' texture on the plant is wrinkled and therefore derives part of their botanical name, caperata, from the Latin word with the same meaning. The Peperomia caperata 'Rosso' sends up a spike 2-3 inches long in the spring and summer on which white inconspicuous scentless flowers grow.
