I'm not sure what to say about this. I am always preaching about how basils don't like temperatures in the 40's and the 30's. Well, forget about it! I guess I'm incorrect. I think wrong is a bit harsh! We have had temperatures in the 30's the last two nights, this is too big to cover and it is still beautiful! Who knew! I guess it is in a microclimate it likes! This is a very ornamental basil and not an edible one. It has a very camphorous flavor. This was the basil I was hoping would go into a container at the beginning of the season. The bees really enjoyed and that's all that matters to me. Hope you had a great day. It was a beautiful fall day here. Families out raking leaves. Talk to you later.
