Wild basil is a member of the dead-nettle family characterised by their square stems and flowers with joined petals arranged in two lips. In the genus to which Wild basil belongs the upper lip is two lobed and the lower one three lobed. The plant has pinkish purple flowers and is in flower from July until September. It is a short to medium height plant with numerous usually unbranched stems forming clumps. The leaves are oval and slightly toothed.
Wild basil is characteristic of dry calcareous soils. It is good at colonizing open ground and then holding its own against competition so long as it is not subject to too much disturbance. It can therefore be found on sites such as quarries, waste ground, dune slacks and also coarse scrubby grassland, woodland margins and hedgerows.

Grows best in dry grassland and is well suited to chalk and limestone soils on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. It has a variety of other habitats including woodland edges, rough grassland and bare open ground. Wild Basil attracts a broad range of insects such as Bees, Butterflies and Ladybirds. It is usually a low growing species with pink flowers that appear in July and August. Wild Basil looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants that flower in early to mid-summer such as Kidney Vetch, Wild Thyme, Wild Marjoram, Greater Knapweed, and Small Scabious.
