Delicate Flower Belie Hardy Plant

The Galium Sweet Woodruff, 'Galium odoratum', is a new ground cover that has delicate white flowers that look wonderful with its dark green foliage.

This little plant grows in woods and on shaded hedgebanks. Flowers are set on tender stalks, with narrow, bright-green leaves.

When dried, the leaves are mildly fragrant. Galium blooms from late spring to early summer.

‘Sweet Woodruff’ has a plant height of 6-12” and a plant spread of 12”.

 It requires full sun but will tolerate morning shade and moist, well drained soil. Its deep-green foliage develops best in the half-shade, where the sunlight penetrates with difficulty. More shade is required in warm climates.

Galium can spread very rapidly and must be planted in an area where it is able to take over or plant in dry soil and reduce watering.

This plant will spread out to form a mat and choke out weeds.

Use sweet woodruff plants as a ground cover for shady areas in the landscape.

Use ‘Sweet Woodruff’ as an edging perennial, in a naturalized area, or as a ground cover beneath shrubs.
