The plant tag on this herb that I planted last year said Summer Savory which is an annual herb. However, it came back up this year so obviously it is a perennial so I suspect that it is actually Winter Savory. It does look like Summer Savory but I will be able to tell better when it blooms. I don't like letting my herbs go to flower because the plant's energy is then put into reproduction rather than the leaf production I want for eating. I planted a piece up in a pot so will let that one go to flower. If the flower is white it is Winter Savory but if it is a lilac colour then it is Summer Savory. Either way it is quite tasty!
