Low-growing groundcover with a profusion of white flowers in spring, and fresh-green foliage all season. Spreads fairly rapidly, but does not become invasive. It covers an entire section of our side garden, surrounded by flagstone paths and centered by a small crabapple tree, and pretty much looks good all the time.
||easy to grow
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|John Barlow||Dec 02, 2011||I am after a plant to use for a path and small sitting is sweet woodruff the one or is there a better option ? It is not heavy traffic area. |
It depends. I don't believe sweet woodruff is considered "walkable", so I would not put it where it will be underfoot. Whether it will be happy in your sitting area depends on the sun/shade condition, and the availability of moisture (it doesn't like to be too dry).
