Basil Persian


Also known as Licorice Basil, Persian Basil seeds and plants contain the natural compound anethole, which gives anise and star anise their strong, distinctive licorice flavor. Persian Basil plants have bright green leaves with a silvery sheen, and deep red flower bracts for extra visual appeal.  Enjoy Persian basil in patio containers or in the herb garden alongside regular basil varieties. Persian basil has quite beautiful pink flowers that are highly attractive to bees and other pollinators.
