Late blooming perennial, more famous for it's culinary use in Herbs de Provence seasoning mixture. Heat, humidity and drought tolerant plant from Mediterranean region (Southwestern Asia to Southern Europe).

Low mounds of small, stiff evergreen leaves, shrubby-woody base. 0.5-1' tall x 1.5-2' wide, small white flowers in mid to late summer. The whole plant is aromatic (strong pungent-peppery fragrance) and can be used as herb to season beans, meat or other dishes.

Full sun to half shade, prefers alkaline and somewhat drained soils or shallow soils (some sand, gravel, rocky or gritty amendment is useful). Medium moist (average moisture), medium-dry to dry soils.

Adaptable to even heavier soil that drain naturally well.

  • Useful, interesting addition 5

    Posted by Kate on 24th Sep 2022

    Finding plants that are good groundcovers is not always easy. A lot of plants in this category are quite aggressive and/or boring... so far Winter Savory has been a really interesting addition. This year I redesigned a small section of my yard with well drained (dry soils). I combined this with Glade Wild Quinine, Little Blue Stem, and Deam's Black-Eyed Susan, and Spiked Blazing Star 'Floristan Violet' from US Perennials. They've been great. For a touch of romance you can add Rosa 'The Fairy' in these conditions.
