This 4″ tall native evergreen groundcover is the American equivalent of Sweet Woodruff. The leaves remind me of snowflakes. Bruised or dried foliage smells like vanilla and repels insects. Fragrant Bedstraw was once used to stuff mattresses. Plant it where it is sunny or partly shady in winter and shady in the summer in average to moist soil. It thrives in high calcium soil. We propagated our plants from a native population growing on a thin layer of rotten leaves over an old brick pathway in Colleton County, SC. it is very rare locally.
