Growing Sweet Woodruff

Sweet Woodruff should be planted in a shady area (full to part shade) in moist, but well-drained soil.

Since sweet woodruff spreads by runners, it is often used as a ground cover or for naturalizing an area (this means that the plant spreads quickly).  This deer resistant perennial is easy to grow, and once established, does not need to be fertilized and should be watered only in times of drought.
