Boxwood Basil


As the name implies, a growing, healthy Boxwood Basil plant resembles boxwood as it grows. Ocimum basilicum, the common Boxwood Basil, is a beautiful, compact, bushy tropical basil with bright purple foliage. This small, round, colorful basil makes an excellent fragrant edging on tall grasses, in pots, or trimmed to small plants in the garden. The leaves of this plant are actually green and they do not contain strychnine alkaloids which are poisonous. But because this plant has a “sweetish flavor,” many people call it Boxwood Basil.
