Ocimum sp. (Basil ‘Thai’)

Life: Annual



Size: 1-2′



Light: Full Sun



Water: Average



Soil: Rich


An erect, branched herb bush, the leaves are moderately-sized and green with dark stems and mulberry-purple flowers arranged in a unique pyramidal shape. The leaves have a sweet anise- or licorice-like fragrance often used in Thai and Vietnamese cuisines. The flowers are also edible and make beautiful arrangements and garnishes. It works well in both containers and beds during the warm months.


Ocimum x citriodorum (Basil ‘Pesto Perpetuo’)


Life: Perennial



Size: 4′



Light: Full Sun



Water: Average



Soil: Rich


A tasty culinary herb and an attractive plant, rolled into one. It has light green leaves with pale cream variegation, grown in a columnar habit, with a fresh basil fragrance. Despite being a Lemon Basil cultivar, it is not lemony and is indeed more like regular basil in flavor. Unlike others, it does not flower, so the flavor does not go off. If kept in a pot in a sunny location, it can be overwintered indoors and you can have fresh and flavorful basil all year round!
