What are the pros? taste, beauty, easy to grow
What are the cons? none
Grew this type of basil this year to add some color to my herb pots outside. It grew like crazy and was a rich, stunning color. Love that it's a bit milder than green basil. It did start fading color, turning a bit greenish, in the long stretch of 90* heat in late summer, but then it produced the prettiest fuscia-colored flowers which more than made up for it.
This plant was so beautiful that I plan on planting this, a LOT of it, as a filler in my flower beds next year.
