Basil Seeds - Dark Opal

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2004
  • Pack Contents: 300+ Seeds

Beautiful deep purple glossy leaves, with the same culinary uses as Sweet Basil, but also wonderfully ornamental in the flower bed or in a container.

The pale pink flowers are a beautiful contrast to the dark foliage and the bees just love it.

Use as a garnish, in salads, and to flavour vinegar. Also good for drying.


  • Good in containers and pots
  • Will flower well in full sun
