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!
