හීන්තලා[Heen-tala]/American basil/Hoary basil ( Ocimum americanum)

An indigenous annual herb of waste grounds, road sides and such other places in low country dry zone. The leaves have pleasant camphor like scent.

  1. Do this plants edible as others basil leaves? I like to eat the leaves raw with sambol as Indonesia's habit.
