Sweet woodruff, or bedstraw, is named for its sweet-smelling aroma and is an easy-to-grow ground cover plant.
This is a creeping evergreen woodland native with small white flowers that bloom in late winter or very early spring (before new growth).
Bunchberry is classified as a form of dogwood and is native to northern regions of North America.
The bright yellow blooms with the angel-like “wings” give the yellow archangel its name. They bloom in spring and early summer.
