It is best to place your order with a note asking when shipment can be made. These are very popular. We we respond whether these can be shipped immediately or not, before we finalize the order. These are three years old at least--the winter heads of pale yellow blossom clusters are breathtaking..
Very broad golden yellow leaves of heavy substance on strong stems which reliably self-branch. Good choice for a yellow gold bedder, especially as the leaves seldom discolor as do many yellow types we have trialed over the years. We thank Peter Kopp for this one.
Solid golden ochre leaves elaborately ruffled around quilted medallion centers-- looks like an absolutely mad basil plant bred on Mars. Upright sturdy habit; one of the very few ochre yellow color types holding up well in winter windows. Certainly more chill tolerant than most of the gold/ochre leaved hybrids.

Certainly the brightest and most highly skirted to date: the very bright lemon yellow leaves, each with a clever lime heart, are extremely flounced and skirted (enclosing the stem completely) with very ruffled crennations--far more fingered than 'Killer Gold' with a brighter yellow margin.. Soooooo Cooool.
Giant golden leaves dappled straw blond along the veins; cassis blushed stems. A massive presence derived from a Frieling cross of 'Japanese Giant' and 'Amazon.' Not advised for the timid grower or the miniature garden.
Bright basil green fluted leaves margined with a frothy bright blond petticoat. Yet another Lohman creature.
