Ocimum sp. (Basil ‘Thai’)
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.
