Siam Queen, Thai Basil Plants

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!

Bloom: Purple, Summer

Thai Basil 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 Thai 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.

Easy July 2, 2018
Reviewer: Shaun Bryan from Harrisburg, PA United States  
I love this basil because its very easy to grow. Its not finicky like the italian basils. Its very hardy ....grows well into fall here. (PA) The plants are also very beautiful with pretty purple flowers on top.  I grow lots of flowers and herbs and love including Thai basil in cut flower arrangements.
