|Aromatic and easy to grow, three types of Savory are common -- annual Summer Savory, perennial Winter Savory and perennial Yerba Buena. Fresh and dried leaves are used in various cuisines. Summer and Winter Savory are called the Bean Herbs since their flavor complements beans. Use also for fish, eggs, meats and soups. Plant in herb gardens or containers. Not as flavorful as Summer Savory, Winter Savory flowers in white to lilac, which attracts bees. Trim and shape this low-spreader for knot gardens. The leaves of the creeping Yerba Buena are used in tea. Sow seeds or buy plants in the herb sections of nurseries.
Has a more delicate flavor than Winter Savory. Replace this annual each year.
