SALE - Dark Opal features beautiful shiny deep purple leaves with pink flowers, and is very fragrant and tasty with a strong peppery basil flavor. Used as a garnish, in salads, and to make flavored vinegars, Dark Opal is also popular for cut flower use and for drying. (Note that Dark Opal produces about 10% variegated or all green plants for a great color combination.) To encourage continued leaf growth throughout the growing season, pinch out the flower heads as soon as they appear and harvest the leaves regularly. Pinching out the central growing tip encourages bushy side growth.
