Tiny, white, profuse flowers bloom in late Summer. Bright green needle-like leaves appear on flattened branches. A native culinary herb of Sardinia, this plant is used for savory dishes, especially of fish and beans. Has a peppery flavour, much stronger than summer savory. The flower is also edible and it is a fabulous bee plant! Perfect for rock gardens.
