Pesto Perpetuo Basil Plants

Ocimum basilicum citriodorum

Our newest basil introduction is a striking plant!

Basil 'Pesto Perpetuo' is a wonderful culinary basil with the distinct basil flavor and a hint of lemon. A lovely plant that grows light green leaves with creamy variegation with a columnar growth habit. Very unusual for a basil and this is definitely an eye-catcher!

This basil is easy to grow, and insects and diseases seem to ignore it! It's a prolific basil so you can expect great yields.

Basil is also a fantastic companion plant and natural pest repellent. Check out Briscoe's Tips to learn what not to plant near your Basil and how you can use it to keep mosquitoes away this summer!

Features
Zone: Annual

Size
: 24"H X 8"S

Light: Full Sun

Bloom: White, Summer

Uses: Edible aromatic foliage, dark green leaves with lovely cream variegation. Yields abundant leaves with authentic Italian basil flavor that tastes great in a pesto sauce. Easy to grow in containers or outdoors.

Tips: As with most varieties of basil, they love the sun and cannot tolerate cold. If you are keeping it indoors to extend its growing season, make sure it gets lots of light and adequate, but not excessive water. Pinch the flowering tops down to the first set of leaves, or first node, to prolong its usefulness in the kitchen.
