Galium odoratum

Sweet Woodruff, Asperula odorata, Bedstraw

Some of these herbs and perennials are grown in rock gardens, while others do best in shady woodland locations. Crushed, the whorled leaves and arching or prostrate stems smell like new-mown hay, which is how they got their name. The many dainty, late spring and summer blooms are usually white, but can be yellow or maroon. Use as edging or as a ground cover. Start by seed or division in fall or spring. Self-sows.
