    The plant I received is large, healthy, and very full. I grew up with sweet woodruff in my backyard as a kid and I am so excited to add it to my garden.

    Romence's galium takes off the moment it is planted, and keeps going as long as it gets adequate moisture. Within a year, the plants I set on 8" centers in an area I regularly water filled in completely for a full, healthy carpet. The plants that I put in an area that gets less moisture did less well -- they held on, but didn't spread. Also, remember to put a few sprigs of woodruff into a bottle of white wine in the early spring for a traditional flavor boost.
