Mrs. Burn's Lemon Basil (Ocimum basilicum var. citriodora) Grow this herb and the bees will come from miles away! The aroma is so pleasantly intoxicating! This a very sweet and tangy variety of lemon basil. We initially grew this one at the request of a local chef and for obvious reasons, we have continued to do so as it has been very popular in herbal gardens. Leaves are bright green, 2 1/2" long with white blooms that are also edible. Plants reach heights of 20 - 24 inches.
