White Flower Challenge - Day 10

Galium odoratum

Sweet Woodruff

This ground cover seems to thrive Here Amongst The Oaks, so we have a lot of it growing in the shady spots. It has whorls of leaves every inch or so along its slender stems. It only grows about 6" tall and has tiny white flowers in the summer. The dried leaves and stems can be made into May wine. It isn't too common at the garden centers, but look in the ground cover or herb section. To spread, take cuttings or plugs from your established plants.

You are delighting me every day with your white blooms. It's like coming here and receiving a gift each morning.
