Winter Savory is a shrubby perennial with a similar, though somewhat stronger, flavor that was at one time frequently used with trout and other oily fish.
Both types of herb originates from the Mediterranean region and were much in demand by the Romans, who introduced them to Britain. Savory was said to be stimulated and, as such, is thought to be an effective aphrodisiac.
Winter Savory grows to height of some 30 cm, and has a spread of around 20 cm. The leaves are greyish green and similar to those of summer savory, while the flowers, borne in spiky clusters, are pinky white or pink.
Sharp, medicinal, herbaceous odour.
Pale yellow to brown colored liquid.
