Taste vs Beauty in Herbs

Sally599 | Apr 16, 2009 11:01 AM

Do you normally buy the typical green culinary herbs or try out the more unusual variegated or differently colored herbs. Example purple basil or tricolor sage vs the normal green. Which still work for cooking? I found silver thyme to be very nice in both color and taste but on the other hand basil is often not so good in the purple form, although the small leaf varieties are nice. Any examples of cases where the pretty herbs don't lose their characteristic taste?
