A Fragrant Groundcover is GardenWise

GardenWise is Sweet on Woodruff

Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum) is a shade garden delight, and the perfect groundcover for adding fragrance to your outside space while reducing lawn areas.  Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soils, it’s fast growing, insect repellent, low  maintainance,  quick to establish and it isn’t prone to invasiveness — though you definitely  do  need to keep it in check.   Sweet Woodruff  has  white  spring flowers  and  an attractive eye-catching foilage.   The foliage’s scent intensifies when  the  flowers  are dried, which  makes them a popular choice for those making potpourri.
