Galium odoratum - Jumbo Landscaping Plugs Description
Cover the ground beautifully and economically - 32 landscape plugs cost just $3.12 each!
Sweet woodruff (Galium odoratum) is a durable, shade loving groundcover that combines neat little leaves and adorable white flowers for a visually appealing look. It transforms problem areas into oases! Each delicate stem is a stack of tidy little leaves, arrayed out like a wheel. But don't be fooled by its dainty looks - it's quite tough and durable in the landscape.
Plant this vigorous groundcover anywhere you need quick coverage. It can take some sun, but is an excellent choice for planting beneath trees and shrubs (especially walnut trees) where other shade groundcovers fail. With this affordable wholesale plug tray, you'll have a lush green carpet quickly!
Galium has aromatic evergreen to semi-evergreen leaves all season. The crushed leaves emit a fragrance of freshly mow hay and when dried, lends fragrance to linens, sachets, and potpourri. It is very popular in Germany as an ingredient in may wine and other spring foods.
Galium is best in a shaded site with moisture retentive soil that does not dry out. Give it a site where it is at home weaving through the garden.

Maintenance & pruning: Spreads by both creeping roots and self-seeding to form an attractive ground cover in moist, shady areas. Can be somewhat aggressive in optimum growing conditions. Where restraint becomes necessary, plants can be mowed with a rotary mower on a high setting, or can be easily pulled from areas where you don't want them. Plants may go dormant by mid-summer if improperly grown in dry, sunny locations. Can dig and move clumps in early spring when new growth appears.
