Adds a delicious peppery, pungent flavour to soups salads and meat dishes.

Brewed as a tea, savorys medicinal properties make it useful as a sore throat remedy. Can be used topically to soothe insect stings. As its name suggests, this perennial variety is hardier than its annual relative, summer savoury. Produces charming white flowers, in contrast to the pink flowers of the summer savoury. Plant in well drained alkaline soil in a sunny spot (will tolerate part shade). Makes a great border and edging plant. Prune in early spring to encourage robust growth. Ht 16 inches.
