Description

Galium odoratum, or Sweet Woodruff, is a mat-forming perennial whose dainty whorls of lance-shaped, rich green foliage are covered with fragrant white flowers in spring. The aromatic foliage may be dried for a super fragrant addition to sachets. Galium odoratum spreads via underground runners and by seeds and may naturalize, but it may be a bit aggressive in optimum growing situations. Galium odoratum makes an attractive, deciduous ground cover and is nice over bulbs.

Galium odoratum prefers partial to full shade and moist to wet, loamy soil

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
