Sweet Woodruff

Galium odoratum

Quantity must be 1 or more

Sweet Woodruff, Galium odoratum, has long been a woodland garden favorite for its elegant beauty. Lance-shaped leaves are shiny green and grow in whorls around stems that grow up to 12" tall. Spreading and naturalizing, the foliage fills in to make a loose and fragrant groundcover. Springtime will bring tiny baby's breath like flowers that can be cut and dried or left on the plant to enhance the landscape. Sweet Woodruff can become somewhat invasive if given ideal conditions. Occasional mowing or pruning may be necessary to keep it contained.
