Woodruff is an evergreen shade plant which will tolerate even the driest, deepest shade. Bright sun will scorch the leaves although dappled shade is still suitable. The tiny white flowers look very delicate against the bright green foliage. Once established, plants spread well and will provide a wonderful carpet under trees and shrubs.
Bees are attracted to the tiny flowers of the Woodruff and the plants provide a dense leaf cover for a woodland habitat.
The leaves of Woodruff have a hay-like scent when dried; ideal for a herb pillow.
