      hi, not pygmy savory, but summer savory most fragrant, antioxidant, medicinal. winter savory if a perennial plant is desired. thyme, stick to the thymus vulgaris cultivars–french, english, german. they are the strongest. r

    hi there, in essence, not this one, but rather the annual summer savory is most recommended, for many reasons. if seeking a perennial savory cover, then satureja montana, but the leaf material is less kind to culinary endeavors, not so soft and forgiving. All of these are going to work well in southern missouri, should not require hurculean effort r
