Magical Michael Basil seed Ocimum ‘Magical Michael’

 

 

Well-branched and compact basil was developed especially for ornamental use and pack and small pot production. Green foliage with purple bracts and very floriferous, small creamy white blooms make it ideal as a foliage plant in combination containers. Very fragrant compared to other ornamental basils, but lower in oils than culinary basils. All-America Selections Winner.Ornamental, aromatic and edible — this basil has it all! Plants are remarkably uniform (for a basil) at about 40cm/15?tall and wide. Compact, lush green foliage is beautifully decorated with numerous purple button-sized flowers. Terrific for containers and garden plantings. Has great potential in salads, pestos, as garnish, or anywhere regular basil is used. All America winner for 2002
