A large shrub or small tree with smooth, shiny, pungently flavoured foliage. The fresh leaves are a famous ingredient in Asian cuisine. Ideal for growing in large pots on warm patios.
Keep moist, Regular trimming encourages a more compact bushy plant. If possible, remove flowers after they fade to prevent seed propagation, as seeds are poisonous and the plant has the potential to become a weed in tropical areas.
