'Colossal' is a large Savory plant measuring 48 x 28" with a 35" bloom scape. The medium green leaves can reach 14 x 10". Introduced in 1977, it is a montana hybrid with funnel-shaped pale lavender flowers. The plant is fertile and is inexpensive. It makes an excellent large mound; according to Sandra Bond, underplanting it with Pachysandra terminalis 'Variegata' makes an excellent presentation.
