Is Galium odoratum invasive?

Some galiums have a reputation for being invasive, but is one of the well behaved ones. Once established it will spread by underground rhizomes to make large clumps, which are invaluable for providing very pretty groundcover in a woodland or naturalised planting scheme.

Also, how much sun can sweet woodruff tolerate?

Light. Sweet woodruff grows well in full shade to partial shade, particularly when it is planted under trees. Full sun, especially when it's at its brightest in the middle of summer, can scorch the leaves.

Similarly, will sweet woodruff grow in sun? First, unlike pachysandra, sweet woodruff is not evergreen. For this reason, sweet woodruff is a ground cover I primarily suggest for full- to part-shade conditions. Avoid planting it in full sun, if possible. If it's already growing in full sun, keep the soil moist during periods of drought.

Subsequently, question is, how do you propagate sweet woodruff?

Once established with room to expand, sweet woodruff spreads and self-seeds readily.

  1. Prepare a shady planting spot with rich, moist soil.
  2. Dig up a section of a sweet woodruff plant.
  3. Dig a hole in the prepared area.
  4. Water the plant deeply enough to saturate the roots immediately after planting.

Is sweet woodruff poisonous to dogs?

Plants such as ornamental grasses and daylilies can stand up to dogs' wear and tear, as can herbs including ground-cover thyme, scented geraniums and sweet woodruff. Besides, "if it's going to be unpleasant for your dog, it's going to be unpleasant for you."
