Boxwood Basil is named for its shape similar to 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 but still tastes as bold and smells as fragrant as the larger Basil varieties. 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. The little leaves of this variety make it easy to sprinkle the fresh flavor of basil on just about any dish you want without any prep work at all.
