Basil Balsamic Blooms

Prepare yourself to get completely lost in the delicious minty flowers and spicy, sweet leaves of Balsamic Blooms Basil, Ocimum. Truly a game changer, it is completely edible, flowers and leaves, yet is so gorgeous you’ll be torn whether to eat it or admire its beauty. The deep purple blooms are simply fabulous, luxurious and edible with a delightful mint flavor. The first basil to have flowers and leaves growing at the same time. Fantastic as a culinary herb or used as an ornamental for containers, landscapes and gardens.

Balsamic Blooms Basil prefers full sun to light shade. For best results give consistent moisture.
