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!

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.

Comment: Second year in a row purchasing these plants as mine froze to death last year, 9B. Healthy upon arrival, but a bit dry. Easy to propagate and plan on moving this years plants indoors in the fall.

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.

Comment: I'm jn love with these plants. They grow into a beautiful bush and the bees love them. They have become very hard to find but thank goodness GrowJoy has provided me with healthy plants that are delivered in great condition.

Comment: I ordered this plant after my sprinkler line froze. this past winter. My cuttings all died before we knew they were not being watered. These are great pollinator plants that were apparently in short supply this year so I was only able to get one. I would like to get more if it is possible. The one I received was big enough that I could get 3 extra starts from it but still need more.
