    After accidentally killing off all of my sweet basil, I was almost too discouraged to plant these seeds. I’m glad I did though because they are thriving! I have already had to divide and transplant them twice and we still have a few weeks to go before they can go outside. Awesome germination and beautiful color!

    My favorite basil. Beautiful color. Flowers are pink and give pretty contrast. I like to plant this with Thai basil and red acre cabbage. Purple tones in other plants compliment the opal basil.

    A very beautiful specimen indeed. I give these as gifts to friends and family. One downside is that the plant will start to turn green if it doesn’t receive enough sunlight.

    I love this basil. It tastes just as good as regular green basil but the purple plant is so pretty like an ornamental. Yes, nice enough to give as gifts.
