Ocimum basilicum purpurescens. Vibrant purple basil with delicate, bee loving, pink blossoms. Plants grow from 1 to 1.5ft., and about 10 inches wide. Beautiful edible border, landscaping plant that stands out when grown alongside silvery leafed plants. Has a clean, sweet but spicy basil flavour that is great fresh in salads and for making funky purple pesto. Tops of plants used to make dark brown dyes.
