Siam Queen Thai Basil

Ocimum basilicum

 

Plants are very compact, 10 to 12 inches tall so Siam Queen is great for containers. A 1997 All America Selections winner. The purple stems, large dark green leaves, and pink-violet flowers make for a lovely basil with a tangy flavor plus a spicy hint of licorice. An early maturing variety. 100 seeds.
