These are evergreen hardy herbs

Leaf and shrub herbs
Leafy herbs such as mint, dill and parsley are less hardy than shrubby herbs. Still, it is possible to harvest parsley in winter. The older the plant, the better it goes. Parsley that you sow in the cold greenhouse in February will be strong enough the following winter to overwinter in a sheltered spot. You can then harvest it all year round. This is possible as long as you leave the heart, the inner leaves, alone. Parsley sown in winter requires some patience, as it can take up to 4 weeks for the seeds to germinate.

Mint keeps green leaves as long as it doesn’t freeze, but loses its leaf when it gets too cold. The plant does not die: in spring the rhizomes under the ground sprout again. The plant expands in this way every year.

Many annuals die before winter. Marigold (Callendula officinalis) can flower for a long time and remain in a sheltered spot. Sweet peas (Lathyrus) that grow against a facade, out of the cold wind and in the sun, can still remain green in winter.
