Herb Basil Siam Queen is very fragrant and has an extra large leaf size which means you can enjoy more of that intense liquorice fragrance! The bright green leaves make an attractive foil for the purple-red stems which bear violet-pink flowers.

Basil Siam Queen is superb as a container plant on the patio where you can smell its aroma all round. It is also excellent for bedding edging and the vegetable or flower garden.
