What are the pros? Pretty, easy to grow, delish
What are the cons? None
What a fantastic plant. Germinates and grows easily, beautiful purple stems, large lush leaves, amazing smell, fabulous taste...a touch of anise along with basil. While my Genovese and purple basil went to seed and petered out by mid to late summer, Cardinal basil is still going strong here in early October and shows no signs of developing flowers yet. I was looking forward to the purple flowers, but the fact that I'm still getting tons of fresh leaves for months and months more than makes up for the lack of flowers. This outdoes Genovese basil by a mile. I'll be growing this every year.
