sweet woodruff

Galium odoratum

A shade gardeners friend, this fast growing, beautiful perennial herb sports small white spring flowers in early summer, and foliage stays neat and pretty into winter. Pest and disease resistant, it also repels insects from the garden. Foliage has a sweet, vanilla-like scent, and dried leaves can be used in potpourri.

This vigorous groundcover makes a quick and beautiful underplanting for shade-loving shrubs like hydrangeas or rhododendrons.
