More Information

Description Galium odoratum, or sweet woodruff, is not a shy garden addition! This ground cover is vigorous, weaving through your garden and suppressing weeds. Delicate white flowers rise above the lush foliage in late spring and summer.  It's excellent for spots where other shade ground covers fail. Plant it on steep, shaded banks for erosion control, beneath trees, or around rocks. Aromatic evergreen or semi-evergreen leaves emit a sweet fragrance when crushed. Try drying the leaves and use them in homemade sachets or potpourris! Buying landscape plugs? Here is how much area they will cover:
  • 6" spacing of 32 landscape plugs covers 6 sq feet

Sweet Woodruff

The plants were beautiful on arrival and are growing well. They are nearly double in size and much fuller.

Sweet Woodruff

Sweet Woodruff packaging was perfect and all plugs were in great shape. Unfortunately, I ordered too soon for the Pennsylvania horticultural zone and was not able to plant when I wanted to. Plants had to stay in the basement for longer than expected but once planted will work beautifully as a fragrant ground cover. This is possibly my third order over time of this plant, so I know it really works in the right place.

Fantastic plants!

The plants arrived very well packed and in excellent condition, bright green and growing well. The plugs are great - long and thin so they are easy to plant in my clay soil but get deep enough to survive a few hot, dry NC spring days. So far they all look fabulous and are blooming nicely. Couldn’t be happier!

Sweet Woodruff

This is the second time buying these plants, and planting them in the same location. The plants come very nice and healthy. However, they all died last year. This year so far they are living, but they are not spreading. If they survive until next spring, I will order some more. But these plants appear to be tender and not able to get through the sandy loam that we have under our pine tree. I'm still hopeful...
