Sweet woodruff is a flowering perennial plant. It has star-shaped fragrant leaves and small decorative white flowers. Bloom time is from April to June. It will spread naturally into an attractive mat of leaves and flowers. Flowers are small, fragrant (with four petals), white-coloured, which appear in loose cymes. Plants emit a strong odour of freshly mown hay when foliage is crushed or cut. Aromatic intensity of the foliage increases when dried; thus dried leaves are popularly used in sachets or potpourris. Plants have also been used commercially in perfumes. Leaves are sometimes used to flavour teas and cold fruit drinks.
