Pesto Perpetuo

Is the form of Basil -'Pesot Perpetuo' - a perrennial as the nam
implies?
If so, would it need frost protection ~ ie: in a sheltered,frost fre place,or maybe protected by fleece or would it need overwintering unde glass or even overwintering indoors?
All suggestions/information gratefully received. I've "googled" but haven't found out much more than in can grow up t 4'

If you can duplicate the sun and climate of the Antilles or the Seychells, you have a chance. Otherwise, it is just another annual with larger than normal leaves for a basil.

It is what is known oxymoronically as a short-lived perennial. It i not frost hardy, so would have to be given full winter protection

Lots of annuals would be perennial if your climate is warm enough.
