'Siam Queen' is an annual herb with highly aromatic, glossy green leaves rich of a licorice basil aroma. As an added bonus, it is late to produce flowers, which often make basil develop a bitter taste. In many Thai dishes, Thai basil is added last, just prior to serving for its fragrance and flavor.
While most basils are grown just for their leaves and flavor, Siam Queen Basil is prized for both its culinary use and ornamental qualities: green foliage and attractive lavender flowers.
Remember it is of tropical origin, so provide warm soil and air temperatures for rapid vigorous growth.
Approximately 400 seeds in 1g packet.
