Gallium Sweet Woodruff

Gallium odoratum

Sweet Woodruff

This is a popular groundcover for shady areas. Plants form a spreading clump of small green leaves  Clusters of tiny white flowers make a pretty display in spring and early summer.  In a moist site this spreads steadily to form a thick carpet.  Great with spring bulbs.  Sweet Woodruff will help to disguise that ugly bulb foliage when it begins to die back in late spring.
