One of my favorite plants that replaced the lawn in the front yard is the stretch of African Blue Basil. It:
- looks gorgeous in the ground as a landscape feature;
- is a stunning addition to large floral arrangements;
- can be used in cooking, of course, or for edible garnishes;
- and is a major attraction for bees.
Here is a link to an article that gives more information about this marvelous herb: PLANT OF THE WEEK: African blue basil / There’s a new basil on the (foggy San Francisco) block.
Have you grown African Blue Basil? What is a favorite plant in your front yard (or on your balcony or porch or window sill)?
