Summary
Ocimum gratissimum is an herbaceous perennial grass, which is woody at its base. It is pantropical and widely naturalised in many regions. Ocimum gratissimum prefers wet and fertile conditions, but can tolerate drought after flowering. It is a weed that is frequently encountered along roadsides but also in pasture. Ocimum gratissimum can become very invasive and form localised dense monospecific thickets, as has occurred in New Caledonia.
