Plant Description

Sweet Woodruff is a 4 to 6 inch deciduous groundcover for good soil in shade. Bright green narrow leaves are whorled around the stems looking like spokes of a wagon wheel. Clusters of star-shaped white flowers appear in late spring but the soft green foliage of this good groundcover is the primary merit. Great with Bellwort, Gingers, Lenten Rose, and acid loving shrubs.
