Clinopodium coccineum 'Amber Blush'
Amber Blush Red Basil
'Amber Blush' is a new yellow-flowered clone of Clinopodium coccineum (which see) from the Florida Panhandle that was introduced and shared with us by Rich Lewandowski of Shangri La Gardens in Orange, Texas. It is very similar to our yellow-flowered introduction ('Ohoopee Yellow') from Georgia but the dark green foliage of 'Amber Blush' may be a bit more dense and the flowers a softer deeper yellow that can become orangey pink with cool fall temperatures .
