Herb Basil Ocimum citriodorum 'Pesto Perpetuo'

Basil

So strikingly different, your neighbors will not even know it is basil. Pesto Perpetuo is an annual herb that grows about 14-18” tall. Each tricolor leaf is a work of art, with deep green brush strokes across the lime center and white paint around the edges. Full, branching plants are tightly packed with enough leaves to harvest until the last summer tomato is picked. Pesto Perpetuo does not flower and the taste is pure, unadulterated sweet basil. Great in landscapes or containers. Just remember to keep the soil moist and the plant in the sun.
