Plant of the Week 03/13/2020
Sweet woodruff Galium odoratum Zone 5-9
Cute, tiny white flowers cover deep green foliage on this low growing ground cover. Blooms appear in late spring to summer. Foliage has a vanilla scent when dried.
Plant in full to partial shade, which make this plant great for those dark corners in your garden. A moderate grower that can spread indefinitely via underground roots. Can reach 12" tall.
Easy to care for and deer resistant. Prefers well drained soils but will tolerate most soils. Cut back to just above ground level in late fall once the foliage turns brown.
