Boxwood basil

Boxwood basil is named for its shape — like a little boxwood. It originated in France for making pesto, but unlike the large-leaved basils, Boxwood has tiny leaves and a tight, fine-textured form. Like other basils, it likes warm weather and is easy to grow. Just clip stems as needed, trimming more before flowering if you need a lot of leaves at one time. Never remove all the leaves or cut back to the woody stems or you’ll end up with a skeleton. The little leaves of this variety make it easy to sprinkle the fresh flavor of basil on just about anything.
