    Satureja montana

    Winter Savory, like its Summer counterpart, is a spicy culinary herb from the Mint family that compliments fish, beans and poultry with its intense flavor. Though it loses some of this intensity during the cooking process, Winter Savory remains aromatic and is often used to flavor liqueurs and makes a beautiful garnish to any salad.

    Producing a bushier habit and woodier stem than the Summer Savory, Winter Savory grows well in substandard, rocky soil and requires little water. If given too rich a soil or too much water, it won't grow as strong and tends not to survive as well through colder temperatures.

    Though not used as often medicinally, Winter Savory is said to possess antiseptic, carminative and expectorant properties. Made into tea form, Winter Savory has been used to treat bronchial and digestive problems. Used externally, this herb's essential oils are said to be an instant relief to bee stings and bug bites and was also once used to treat arthritis and baldness.

    Also available in our four inch hand thrown Guy Wolff Greenhouse Pot. The aged finish of these classic terracotta pots will add style to your naturally beautiful plants! Whether it's a "thank you" for the hostess with the “mostest”, or a corporate Christmas gift, these potted herbs make the perfect gift.



    Features
    Zones: Perennial in zones 4-8

    Size: 12"H 12"S

    Light: Full sun

    Bloom: Pink, blooms in late Summer

    Uses: Winter Savory has a spicy flavor much like a cross between Mint and Thyme and tastes great when paired with Sage in poultry and fish dishes.

    Tips: Don't over water your Winter savory, or it won't grow hardy enough to stand the cold Winter months. This herb is also very low maintenance and grows in poor soil conditions.

    Replacement emergency resolved :) February 17, 2014
    Reviewer: Misty Bartley from Fort Worth, TX United States  
    I bought 3 of these when it looked as though my 10 yr old plant would not survive encroachment by rosemary (after years of neglect and drought.) I transplanted the old one and bought these as insurance - it is very difficult to find new plants!  It tastes like black pepper. Very hardy, even the elder is recovering from near death. The new plants initially alarmed me because their foliage was so different.  Reassured that the flavor was the same, I kept watch.  The three plants I got were quite lush, very good strong plants.  I suspected they'd been grown in a greenhouse.  The new growth is exactly like my old plant now, smaller sharper leaves. I highly recommend this herb.  It will not hold its flavor in a high heat long cooking situation like a soup, but added at the end of cooking it works just fine.  Since actual black pepper grows on vines in a jungle very unlike North Texas, come the zombie apocalypse I'd say go with the winter savory :)
