Favourite Plants AtoZ: Sweet Woodruff

February 22, 2011 at 9:12 am Leave a comment

Oh sweet sweet woodruff, with your dainty little white spring flowers and your tropical like leaves how pretty you sit under the big shade tree. This hardy perennial acts as an aromatic groundcover, and can tolerate part sun.  Its shallow roots allow for hard to grow areas like tree roots and rocky soil. They do well in rock gardens, naturalized gardens, as well as formal ones, how versatile is that? Easy to propagate, and if not exposed to a hot sun, Sweet Woodruff has been known to flower from spring through most of the summer. Also known as an insect repellent, use this shady herb en mas, or below roses and peonies, or as a border.
