We love fragrance in the garden and this basil was a huge surprise. A culinary standard in Thai cuisine, this basil has a series of intense flavors. It has a clove/mint essence with undertones of typical basil but has smaller dark green leaves that produce lovely deep purple flowers and stems. We planted 6 plants and we were simply overwhelmed by the wonderful quality and aroma. Brush against the plant and it was almost like the intensity you would expect from rubbing your fingers through scented geranium. Lovely and delicious and an absolute must in the garden. A little goes a long way with this particular plant. Keep plants cut on a regular basis to keep the plants viable. I just used the extra as extra floral arrangement filler, sometimes I chopped them finely and scattered them around the lettuce as a bug deterrent, chopped them and used them as a fragrant mulch.
