A: English thyme (Thymus vulgaris) — 1
B: Tricolor sage (Salvia officinalis ‘Tricolor’) — 1
C: Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) — 1
D: Summer savory (Satureja hortensis) — 1
A: English Thyme
Thymus vulgaris is the classic culinary thyme and often used to season poultry. Small pink blooms appear at the top of the stems in the summer. The dark leaves give this arrangement a dash of rich color.
B: Tricolor Sage
Even when not used as a flavoring agent, sage makes an attractive perennial companion plant in the garden or a container garden. Salvia officinalis ‘Tricolor’ has soft foliage splashed with green, cream, and purple. In sunniest locations, the cream deepens to pink.
With bright green, fern-textured stems, cilantro holds its own in beds or pots, forming a clump of sturdy, flavorful stems. Every part of cilantro promises a taste treat: spicy leaves, pungent seeds (known as coriander), and tangy roots. The large lime green leaves add big contrast in this box.
