I don’t know if Gallum would think of this low growing greenery with the tiny white flowers as being precious. I’m actually not sure if I consider it precious, but I thought it would make for a clever title.
I planted this beneath what is normally identified as an out-of-control and invasive shrub which I believe to be a Japanese Honeysuckle though I’ve been experimenting in transforming it ever since it sprung into existence several years back into that of a miniature ornamental tree. However, I digress.
Galium was identified as a plant that could make a good addition at the base of trees and shrubs. I have further just read its sweet vanilla-scented flower clusters are used to flavor May wines in Germany. Hmmmm.
I haven’t smelled it yet. Though I planted it last spring it had no blooms until this year. I guess I’ll have to go out and take a sniff. I wonder if I could toss some blooms in with my coffee grounds to get vanilla coffee?
