Basil ‘Purple Ruffles’
$5.99 – $6.99
Purple Ruffles has handsome dark purple-black fringed foliage that is heavily ruffled and fringed, it produces spikes of large and showy, pinkish-purple flowers. While it deserves a place in your kitchen garden, it also makes an excellent contrasting plant in a border.
One taste of this variety will have you tearing the leaves off by the armful. The colourful leaves are full of flavour, aromatic when crushed and are especially fine for herb vinegars and for garnishing. Tolerates a little shade, especially in the afternoon but make sure you give it plenty of sunlight.
