An All-America Selections winner, this ornamental and aromatic Thai Basil will please everyone who enjoys cooking with authentic ingredients. 'Siam Queen' grows 1-2ft tall and has 3in leaves, distinctive purple stems, and large, flat, eye-catching purple flowers. Once pinched, the plant forms many side branches, extending their useful harvest throughout the growing season. The exotic flavor of 'Siam Queen' is redolent of sweet spices combined with the clove-mint scent and taste of Basil. It can be used in Thai and Cambodian dishes, but don't restrict yourself. It's marvelous in chutneys, marinades, and jelly. A lovely herb to interplant with flowers for an edible landscaping accent. For more information on growing Basil click on "Growing Guide & Tips".
