Plant Details: Red Basil
6? - 10
This is a bright yellow form of a very striking woody species that presents itself more charmingly than any small shrub can. Native of the SE U.S. and found on sand hills and dry pine barrens throughout the coastal plain of the gulf states from Mississippi to Georgia and Florida. This species normally matures in an up right open airy fashion to 2.5'High x 2'wide and produce a striking arrangement of 1.5-2" long tubular golden yellow flowers from May to October. This plant must have very well drained soils with sand being ideal medium. I have had great success growing it in rich organic woodland soil and shade. Make sure to plant it where you want it for it despises root disturbance and does not transplant well at all.
