At last, someone has bred a basil to accentuate the stunning flower heads! Still a culinary basil, but the rich purple flower heads are huge! Use the flowers in arrangements, the leaves in your favorite recipes. A very choice milestone of conventional plant breeding!

Review:

This was a great choice for a container pot. Seedlings were started indoors and sprayed with water from a bottle daily. It was just easier to remember to water that way. Beautiful green leaves with gorgeous purple stems. No pests bothered mine at all. I got 6 plants from a package because I tried to sow directly into the ground which doesn’t work well for tiny seeds.

Review:

Great basil!! The plants did not quit during the entirety of our long growing season! It sold very well at the Farmer's Market, with people happily commenting on how they could use the whole plant, stem and all. We were never able to see the lovely flowers, probably because we kept harvesting it. But how wonderful is it to have a productive basil plant last for 8 months!! Will definitely always have a spot in our garden. Just make sure to grow the plant in good soil. We planted this basil in 2 different spots, and the plants grown in the rich compost were unstoppable.

Review:

I love this basil plant. I bought seeds two years ago, dug up the plants in the fall and carried them thru the winter. They were pretty sad looking when I planted them in May, but I cut them back and they rewarded me with small bush sized plants by August. I also was able to cut and start more plants for next year so I don't have such a big plant taking up space. Just a couple plants provided me, family and friends with basil all summer long. The only other basil I grow now is lemon and lime.

Review:

This basil is wonderful and is my go to basil. As I write I'm collecting seed. It has perennialized in my yard. I pull off the flower heads a few at a time and the plant just gets bigger and fuller. It is ornamenal as well as the shape and color look good at all times.

Review:

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.
