Annual. Purple basil looks and tastes great. The leaf color is a deep purple with light pink blossoms. Harvest it to use as an Italian basil or prune and let grow into an ornamental. Loses its color when cooked, so add to salads and cold dishes or use as a garnish. Imparts a gorgeous color to vinegar if not cooked. Creates a beautiful contrast when planted in an herb pot.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our herb plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are well established and are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
