I am looking for this plant but cannot find it. If anyone can help I would be grateful.
Sweet woodruff is Gallium odoratum, try it by that name. It's a perennial ground cover for shade, somewhat invasive. Nice if you've got the space.
Lady's bedstraw is Gallium verum, yellow and does best in sunny places.
Hedge bedstraw is Gallium album (or mollugo) a scrambler in grassland or hedges.
What sort of soil/aspect have you got and where are you?
Mine is from seed from Chiltern Seeds (it's called asperula odorata).
Came up quickly and 12 months later I now have a nice big patch of it, and will be splitting some up for another woodland area.
asperula, yes, which is the old and which is the new name?
Asperula is a very old name for Galium odoratum.
Someone should tell Chiltern Seeds
I live in Hampshire and want to grow Galium Odoratum to attract the elephant hawk moth. I believe the hawk moth caterpillar will eat bedstraw (gallium), rosebay willow herb and fuchsia. I know it eats fuchsia as I have had 6 caterpillars munching their way through my fuchsias this year
Well sorry to sy the EHMs never returned.
