Ocimum basilicum var. thyrsiflora (Thai Basil)

Ocimum basilicum var. thyrsiflora - Thai basil is a tender perennial[ but is typically grown as an annual. As a tropical plant, Thai basil is hardy only in very warm climates where there is no chance of frost. Thai basil is sturdy and compact growing up to 45 cm (1.48 ft), and has shiny green, slightly serrated, narrow leaves with a sweet, anise-like scent and hints of licorice, along with a slight spiciness lacking in sweet basil. Thai basil has a purple stem, and like other plants in the mint family, the stem is square. Its leaves are opposite and decussate. As implied by its scientific name, Thai basil flowers in the form of a thyrse. The inflorescence is purple, and the flowers when open are pink. Thai basil can be repeatedly harvested by taking a few leaves at a time and should be harvested periodically to encourage regrowth. Family : Lamiaceae
