What are the pros? always there
What are the cons? none
planted about 10 years ago, and it reliably self-seeds somewhere in the garden, always, ever since. birds love the seed heads, too. i use the young leaves and tender growth tips for a delicious lemony pesto on fish, broccoli, and pasta. a few branches in the steaming water give beans a nice flavor without sauce. lemon basil is a good and lasting friend!
