Details

4" tall x 15-18" wide. This shade loving, beautifully textured groundcover is an excellent lawn replacement. Sweet Woodruff thrives in shady conditions that most lawn grasses don't like, forming a dense, weed-resistant canopy of leaves. Booming for a few weeks in late spring with sprays of tiny white flowers, the plant is most appreciated for its ornamental foliage. Best in parts of the country with cool to moderate summer temperatures, it will tolerate more heat if irrigated regularly when rain is lacking.

      Q & A

      Suggested Companion Plants:

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
