Product Details

Winter savory captures the best qualities of many herbs in one. Spicy and peppery with a hint of thyme and mint, this complex seasoning is especially delicious in rich, savory dishes. An attractive ornamental in rock gardens and borders, it beckons bees and other beneficial insects, and is a low-maintenance herb that grows well in poor soils.
