Product Description

New! Open Pollinated. Tender annual, but can be a perennial in Zone 10. Edible landscaping at its finest, African Basil makes a stunning plant, with a bushier form (3' x 3') than most basils, green leaves veined with purple, and abundant purple blossoms that smell amazing, attract bees, and are edible. The flower stalks are used in flower arrangements, too, and have a long vase life. A cross between a camphor basil and dark opal basil, African blue has more of a camphor scent than Italian basils do. A sterile cross, African Blue will not produce seeds. So, you can let it bloom prolifically and not sacrifice leaf production. Blossoms can be added to salads or floated on the top of drinks. Try the leaves in vinaigrettes and pestos. Has therapeutic benefits, especially as an anti-inflammatory.

We have a 6 plant minimum for shipping purposes. You can mix and match varieties to meet the minimum.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through late May, to the 48 contiguous states. We schedule your shipment to arrive just after the last frost date for your area. We will send an email from our farm (lazyoxfarmyahoo.com) within 24 hours of receiving your order informing you of your shipping date. You are welcome to change the shipping date. Just let us know when you want them.

Our plants are sustainably raised. We use only organic soil, fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We will start accepting orders for 2020 in early January. We will start shipping in late March, weather permitting. Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week from late March through May.
