Basil Dark Opal

Basil Dark Opal is a bold basil with a richly purple leaf. Its deep colour adds a dark edge to any garden bed and is a lovely contrast to plants with brighter foliage. Its flavour, though not on par with the culinary basils, is still good, especially when the young leaves and shoots are harvested earlier.
