Fresh savory also adds a delightful flavor to salads, is an important component of Herbes de Provence (see recipe inside packet to make your own mix), and is used in tea to soothe a sore throat and upset stomach. Attractive, 18" tall, fast-maturing plant has flowers ranging in color from white to lavender, that attracts bees.

summer and winter savory

5 out of 5 stars Sep 27, 2021
I am just planting both Savory seeds inside in sun porch, and did not get the little zinnias or anything else on the list. I hope for better luck next year.

Very Prolific ...

5 out of 5 stars Feb 28, 2022
Planted in outdoor rectangular Herb Garden container ... this savory was very prolific & I had to keep it well pruned to prevent it from taking over the entire container (along with some Sage) ... Love having a variety of fresh herbs available for a multitude of recipes - Savory is especially a nice addition for roast chicken & potatoes ...
