Ocimum labiatum is a fast-growing, many branched, semi-deciduous shrub with aromatic heart-shaped leaves. It is a very popular garden plant as it is hardy to a moderate degree of frost and extreme drought, once established. The plant may be cut back to one-third of its height every couple of years to rejuvenate the woody growth.
