I like Sweet Woodruff as a companion plant for my Hostas. It can be a little bit weedy but is easily pulled. I like the foliage and also the refreshing little white blossoms.....

Sweet woodruff is a wonderful ground cover. The blossoms in the spring are charming, but the foliage carries the day all season long.
Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.

Sweet Woodruff is well behaved in my garden. I love the appearance and also the sweet hay fragrance too.
