Lost the tag so I have no idea what variety this one is. The flowers are a light pink on deep burgundy heads.

Thanks!

waveyHi Triss,
looks like cinnamon basil.A sure way to tell is pinching and sniffing.

Nope, not cinnamon. It is a very strong basil smell. In fact it is all over me now cuz I was just out weeding in that area and the fumes actually gave me a bit of a headache.

The only thing is that my sweet basil is a very light green whereas this one is a much deeper shade. But those flowers look similar only mine are more compact

If there is a sweet anise-licorice aroma, it could be OCIMUM basilicum "Anise".
