Sweet Woodruff


Delicate-looking, yet tough, Sweet Woodruff makes a delightful groundcover in shady settings. Richly fragrant, dark green leaves have an unusual, whorled shape. Tiny white flowers bloom on top of the leaves in early spring. Spreads fairy quickly into a solid, scented carpet if planted in moist, loose, compost-rich soil.

Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.
