Writing material of ancient times and the plant from which it comes,
(sedge family), also called paper plant. This grasslike aquatic plant has
woody, bluntly triangular stems and grows to about 15 ft high in quietly
flowing water up to 3 ft deep. The ancient Egyptians used the stem of the
plant to make sails, cloth, mats, cords, and principally paper. Paper
made from papyrus was the chief writing material in ancient Egypt,
Greece, and Rome. In the 8th – 9th century AD, other plant fibers
replaced papyrus in the manufacture of paper. The plant is now often
used as a pool ornamental in warm areas or in conservatories.

Chili peppers not only make delicious food, they also make super health food.
They are naturally low in fat, calories and sodium; and have zero cholesterol
|ANCHO ST. MARTIN PEPPER
Once restricted by climate to Mexico, this hugely popular, mild
poblano chile rellano type can now be grown almost anywhere
thanks to earlier maturity and improved setting capabilities. Called
"Ancho" when dried, the dark green, 5 1/2" fruits are a favorite for
roasting. One of the mildest chiles, typically just 500 to 1000
Scovilles, although they sometimes register slightly hotter. A
better yielder than most others of its type.
|BIG BOMB PEPPER
Big Bomb has it all - vigorous habit, fast
cropping and extra-prolific yields of uniform, 2"
fruits that explode with rapid maturity to a brilliant
red. Fruits are moderately pickled. Resilient
under a wide range of growing conditions.
|"GHOST" PEPPER Bhut Jolokia
From Treehugger.com :Bhut Jolokia when eaten, is
described as the equivalent to dying. It causes an
indescribable pain within the mouth that can last up to an
hour, and if you get a dash of this stuff in your eyes, well, I
won't even go there! Bhut Jolokia has so far had very limited
applications as a XXX spice for daredevils and repellent for
rogue elephants. By smothering the contents of the
peppers onto the fences and trees where elephants are
confined, it creates an almost impenetrable barrier. It seems
that elephants are just as repelled by this super hot pepper
as most people are.
Among the very hottest ever measured! Reportedly
1,000 times hotter than Jalapeno! Lantern-shaped, 1"
by 1-1/2" pods, with thin, wrinkled light green flesh,
ripen to a lovely golden orange. Slow to germinate,
and must be grown in warm, moist conditions. A
favorite for sauces. High-yielding plants grow 36" tall
Very hot, ideal for Mexican dishes. Deep green fruits
are also perfect for pickling. Just like Jalapeno, but
earlier and better adapted to cool coastal conditions.
|NUMEX SUNRISE PEPPER
New Mexico. Medium hot, 4 to 6
plants. Medium green, thick
walled fruits turn bright yellow at maturity
Whether used green or red, this is one
very hot pepper! Flavorful peppers are
perfect for chili sauce, salsa, hot pepper
vinegar and pickles. Vigorous 30" plants
are covered with 2 inch thin-walled fruits
Thai Hot is a Thailand original that's ornamental as
well as edible - if you can stand the heat! Its stocky,
8" plants are covered with peppers that start out a
deep green in color, then mature to bright red as
they grow 2 to 3" long. Fleshy pods are particularly
good in Oriental dishes and chili. You'll appreciate
their beauty in borders and containers, and savor
their flavor in the kitchen!

A very attractive oregano from England with dark purple-

to 60cm/2ft high. The mildly spicy scent is almost
costmary-like, and the leaves can be used in potpourris

and butterflies are drawn to it.
