Galium odoratum

Commonly known as "Sweet woodruff" this low-forming perennial is most often grown as a ground cover in shady areas. Plants typically grow 8-12" tall and feature fragrant, lance-shaped, dark green leaves in whorls of 6-8 along square stems. Small, fragrant, 4-petaled, white flowers appear in loose shoots in spring. 

Clusters of tiny white flowers make a pretty display in spring, blooming April through May. In a moist site, this spreads steadily to form a thick carpet. Although nearly evergreen in mild winter regions, the old foliage should be trimmed off in late winter.

Pair great with spring bulbs of all kinds, Sweet Woodruff will help to camouflage any ugly bulb foliage when it begins to die back in late spring. Can be easily divided at almost any time. Works well grown under trees, shrubs, naturalized and gardens with part shade to full shade settings. It's popular to dry the foliage into potpourri satchels. Tolerant of black walnut.

Arrives to you in a quart-sized container as shown in photo 4.
