boxwood basil ocimum basilicum boxwood

Boxwood basil (Ocimum Basilicum Boxwood) is an extremely flavorful type of basil which grows small and compact in an attractive boxwood (rounded) shape. The taste of its tiny leaves are very similar to that of sweet basil. The leaves generally do not need to be pruned at all.

This variety is ideal for containers because of its small size and generally grows from 12 to 16 inches tall.
