Galium odoratum

  • Pot size: 9cm
  • Plant size: 30cm (12in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: April to June



We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012.

Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.
