    An upright, tender perennial bred for summer patio pots where the fragrant leaves will perfume the air buzzing with pollinating insects as they hunt through dense spikes of whorled, small, tubular, mauve flowers. The purple flushed dark green leaves of ‘Magic Mountain’ have a classic basil flavour great for adding flavour to pesto, sauces, salads and meat dishes. One of the best for ornamental value.

  • Garden care: To promote leafy growth pinch out the growing tips. Overwinter inside, and keep it on a bright windowsill or conservatory during colder weather.
