Using Sweet Woodruff

Use sweet woodruff in a rock garden, or as a ground cover under taller plants or in partial shade. Try it around shallow-rooted rhododendrons, or with English ivy. It's also a good accent plant for the front of the perennial bed, although it does not really like lots of sun. It is ideal for naturalized areas, among wooded or semi-wild landscapes.
Drying: Sweet woodruff foliage can be harvested at any time during the growing season for use as a dried fragrant herb. Cut stems early in the day and air dry in the shade to retain color. The distinctive vanilla fragrance is not obvious until foliage is dried.
