Winter Savory is a rare unique herb with a taste reminiscent of thyme. Its leaves are thicker and stronger than Summer Savory, and are also more aromatic. The leaves can be harvested at any time during the growing season, and they can be used fresh or dried. This herb is most commonly used to flavor beans, soups, and stews. Winter Savory can also be made into a tea to calm indigestion or gargled to soothe sore throats. This plant is a very vigorous grower and forms a boxwood like low border shrub. It is also easily grown in containers, and while it is a hardy perennial, the plants will over winter nicely indoors for fresh leaves year round. Outdoors, it will attract bees, birds, & butterflies.
