African Blue Basil Herb Plants produce purple-veined leaves with a strong, earthy flavor and a warm, sweet camphor scent. The flowers are very decorative. This variety does not need flowers pinched back to continue growing. Basil grows best in full sun locations with moist, well-drained soil. It can be grown indoors next to a south facing window. Indoor plants should be watered just as the potting mix starts to dry.
We grow our African Blue Basil (Ocimum kilimandscharicum x basilicum) Plants organically and guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving!
"The BEST Basil"

Comment: This basil never disappoints—it’s a healthy, vibrant, happy cultivar that is delicious in pesto, salads, and Thai dishes. It’s a prolific bloomer from spring all the way to December in and attracts hundreds of bees to the garden. No other basil compares!

Comment: Basil arrived packed nicely and very healthy. Was growing rapidly and transplanted no problems. Already 3 feet high after only a couple months and bees are loving it.

Comment: Plant arrived in amazing condition, showing no wear or tear from the traveling ordeal. Given the earliness of the season for this plant it has blooms on it. Been in ground beside last years Large Leaf Basil, and doing well. Side note: I live in Hawaii.

"European Honey Bees love this plant"

Comment: The imported European honey bees really love these flowers. Plants did great and were also easy to propagate. Unfortunately mine died when temps dropped to 31-33 so I'll be buying more.

Comment: The plants arrived healthy. The basil is growing well. I plan on growing the basil in planters and in the garden. I will be buying more plants from GrowJoy in the future.

Comment: I order various plants from GrowJoy every year. I love the convenience, but I love the quality of the plants even more. Every plant is delivered as promised. Every plant grows into a healthy and beautiful addition to my garden. I recently planted the African Blue Basil herbs I received from GrowJoy. Bees will soon arrive and cover the large African Blue Basil plants to pollinate throughout the growing season. Please save the bees.
