A perennial form of basil. Height approximately 30 inches
Purple flowers with Dark Green/Purple leaves. Flavour not unlike common basil.
Use to make a pesto. Leaves can be added to salad or used to flavour tomato based dishes, pasta sauces, herb oils and vinegars.
Tender perennial. Needs to be kept above 5 degrees C in winter. Can easily take a cutting like a geranium to have a smaller plant indoors for the winter.
