Summer Savory (species Satureia hortensis), aromatic annual herb of the mint family (Lamiaceae). To flavor many foods are the dried leaves and flowering tops, particularly poultry and stuffings.

Savory grows well in warm climates and native to the Mediterranean region. The ancient Greeks and Romans used it blended with thyme for flavoring game and stuffings. In the time of the Caesars, the Romans brought savory to Britain. The colonists brought it to America, and it is a favorite seasoning in the United States. Winter savory, or dwarf savory, is Satureia montana, a smaller sub shrub that flowers in winter.
