Jefferson documented

Native to the Mediterranean, Winter Savory was being grown in New England gardens during the seventeenth century. Thomas Jefferson’s friend and neighbor, George Divers of Farmington, noted that he was able to supply Jefferson with the pot-herbs “Marjoram, Winter Savory and Thyme” in a letter written February 28, 1820. The leaves of Winter Savory can be used to season hardy foods such as bean dishes, organ meats, and wild game. An attractive plant, it can also serve as an evergreen edging in the herb garden or flower border. The fragrant foliage is not favored by deer.

This plant will begin shipping in mid April 2014. zone6,zone7,zone8
