Spring Planting: this product will be shipped late April through May according to your hardiness zone.
Gallium odoratum. If you've got a partially shaded and moist area, here is an overachieving ground cover with old cottage charm. Bright green, finely cut foliage forms a thick carpet and is delightfully fragrant when walked upon. In late spring, loads of tiny star-shaped flowers appear in clusters. A vigorous grower that will naturalize easily. Height 6-8". 2.5" plug.

Some Perennials will be shipped in pots and may have actively growing green leaves. These pots should be immersed in water upon arrival to thoroughly soak the root ball. These growing plants must be hardened off before planting outside. Keep in a cool bright room, and place outside on mild days and gradually leave outside for longer periods of time. After a week or so, or when nighttime temperatures are above freezing, plant outside. If a severe dip in temperature is expected, you may want to place straw or an old blanket over the green leaves to protect them from severe damage. Frost or cold will not permanently hurt the plant, but it may damage the new leaves and set growth back.
Galium does best in partial to full shade in moist, acidic, well-drained soil. Though it will survive in drier soils, it may become ragged by late summer, so moist soil is preferable. This is a quickly spreading groundc over, but it can easily be kept in bounds.
