A stunning basil that grows to about 50 cm tall and has large ruffled jagged leaves. It aroma and flavor are accented with licorice and cinnamon. It has wonderful edible lavender pink flowers. Purple Ruffles Basil can grow with less sunshine than sweet basil but should still have 3 hours of sun per day. This basil is an annual like sweet basil so the flowers must be pinched off to stop the plant bolting. Beautiful in the vegetable and herb garden or as an ornamental.
