This is not your usual basil plant. At 2-3 feet tall and 9-12 inches across it has a very stately columnar appearance. This basil is also unusual in that it seldom flowers. Smooth foliage has outstanding flavor as well as a wonderful aroma. It is one of the stronger-flavored basils, good for stews and hearty dishes in modest amounts. The aroma has overtones of cinnamon, so I don’t find it the best basil variety for pesto.
