    Ocimum basilicum

    This exotic 'Siam Queen' Basil plant is a beautiful bloomer and useful culinary herb! Thai basil has a distinct but subtle licorice flavor which is perfect for stir fries and soups. Just rubbing one of this basil's small, delicate leaves between your fingers releases a wonderful anise aroma!

    The purple blooms of this lovely culinary herb are very ornamental and do not effect the flavor as much as that of the Italian basils. These blooming spires are wonderful additions to arrangements or grown alongside your flowers for texture and aroma. The light musky scent has hints of mint and cloves. Plant in full sun. Grows 18-22" tall.

    Basils are also fantastic natural pest repellents and companion plants. Their oils have the power to ward off house flies, mosquitoes and more, while encouraging surrounding crops. Read Briscoe's Tips for more information on this wonderfully dynamic herb!

    Zone: Annual

    Size
    : 18"H x 8"S

    Light: Full Sun

    Bloom: Purple, blooms when not pinched back through the Summer

    Uses: A licorice-flavored culinary herb used in Asian cuisine, 'Sweet Thai' is less peppery than basils used in Italian cuisine. Letting this culinary herb go to bloom in your garden won't affect the taste as much as other varieties and its intricate spire of purple flowers is a gorgeous addition to your landscape.

    Tips:Try substituting this flavorful basil in place of its Mediterranean cousins, as it holds its flavor better when cooked. For a more full plant, pinch the growth tips back which will force this herb to spread more rather than grow higher and skinnier.
