Cardinal Basil Seeds, Thai Basil- Great for the Herb Garden

  • $ 3.35


Cardinal Basil is one of the most flavorful and prettiest herbs for the summer garden. Cardinal Basil plants are full of rich green foliage that can grow 24-36 inches tall through the course of the growing season. In mid summer the plants will begin forming a bushy red flower cluster at the top of each plant. I've seen Cardinal Basil flowers used in summer bridal bouquets and arrangements.The flowers don't run to seed quickly so constant deadheading is not necessary. The large leaves makes this an excellent choice for Pesto and other recipes. 

Basil grows best in full sun and well drained soil. Cardinal Basil is an excellent variety for container gardens where the burgundy stems and red flower clusters add texture and interest to mixed plantings. 

Each seed packet contains 45 seeds. Your seeds will come packaged in a simple brown kraft paper envelope. Complete growing instructions included with each order. All seeds are harvested and cleaned by hand. There may be small bits of chaff mixed in with the seeds.
