A large vigorous and bushy plant producing fragrant green leaves with purple stems and small red to purple flowers. It has quite a strong, clove-scented, aroma that is more intense in flavour than sweet basil. It's commonly used in Asian cuisine such as in curries, stir fries, soups and salads. A late flowering variety, that results in higher yields. Great planted straight in the garden or in pots and containers. Pick as needed.
