This carpeting wildflower can be found in mature woodlands and other damp, sheltered places. Native throughout Europe, it was once used to flavour beer and its wonderful scent reminiscent of fresh hay and vanilla was a popular choice in potpourri or indeed in the linen closet - you’ll need to pick it to smell it. Classed as an edible wildflower, Galium Odoratum has both culinary and medicinal properties. This is a low-growing plant and therefore a great ground cover, with whorls of narrow, pointy leaves on square stems, bearing loose heads of tiny white star-shaped flowers in May and June, which, together with its carpet-forming habit, will turn any woodland into a fairytale.
