Ocimum basilicum “Purpurascens”
Beautiful aromatic herb with dark maroon leaves and pale pink flowers in summer that are a perfect combination of ornamental appeal and intense spicy flavor. Leaves are smooth, flat and large growing 3-4” long. This compact plant is a nice choice for containers or great in the garden or for planting as a border.
Chef Jeff’s Tip – For drying wait until flowers begin to open, cut entire plant and hang it upside down.
