Savory, Winter satureja montana
Winter savory is an evergreen perennial with dark, glossy leaves and a rich, peppery scent. It has white clusters of starry blooms that resemble snow and a versatile, bushy growth habit.
Savory is well known for flavoring salami. Plant this herb in the sun and use small amounts of its leaves in hearty dishes such as soups and stews which contain beef or chicken. Aids in digestion when added to bean dishes.
