Details

This is the original botanical illustration by Wendy Hollender that was used for our Basil Bouquet Art Pack. The Thai basil in the illustration is in the middle showing a purple stem with green leaves and lavender flowers. Both the look and taste of this basil are unique. Some say it tastes a bit like licorice.

How to Grow

Direct sow after frost, or start indoors up to 1 month before last frost date. To have fresh basil the whole season, start in succession at one-month intervals. Pinch off tallest growth in order to keep basil from flowering; flavor becomes too strong once in bloom. Good for garden or container plantings.
