    Manda,

    You should be able to grow any basil really as they are from tropic to sub tropic and even mediteranean. Bare in mind they can't take frost. I have't grow any camphor basil as it is mainly for indian culinary ( or and medicinal). it said to be huge. I presume you have to treat it like growing thai basil, lots of heat...so it will be rewarding with green house .
    P.S I was looking the mentioned basil at the Curry leaves part...I need stronger glasses .

    I grow, I pick, I eat ...
