All Things Green, Bright, and Hot!

This looks like a pepper plant.
It could be a pepper flower!

It has that round, black, crumpled, mole-like stuff
in the middle of its petals.

And this is the plant beside it.
The flowers are small but thick and sturdy.
Needless to say that it is so beautiful!

I wonder if both of these plants are related?
They are both green, gorgeous and hot!
And this Keeper is as clueless as ever.

But I'm sure Maia or some of her friends would know.
Because this green beauty is my contribution to Maia's MacroFlower.
And also for TodaysFlowers of Luiz, Denise, Pupo and Sandy.
And the next time I stumble across it, I will find its owner and inquire.

Beautiful little flower, whatever it is.
I've never seen a black pepper plant, it doesn't grow in our parts, not in Europe (as I know).

However, we have those tiny chilly pepper plants (Capsicum annuum) in pots, but the fruits of all peppers are green when unripe and the flower petals a pointed.

"Was this answer helpful?" ☺

Thanks for sharing your lovely photos on Macro Flowers Saturday.

So unique and sweet looking. I see a tiny water droplet on there as well which makes it even more special. Fantastic shots.

I've seen this flower but in red color. My mom would love to have that black balls because they are seeds and can be planted in our garden.
