Dainty white flower clusters are held above foliage shaped like miniature parasols. Good ground cover for shade, even where only moss will grow. Especially tolerant of acidic soil under evergreens.

Fresh foliage has little scent, but when dried you will enjoy a refreshing scent of new mown hay. Dry foliage in bundles or make into a garland. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.

Asperula General Information

Asperula does well in any moist well-drained soil. Foliage looks great all season. Perfect for a carpeting groundcover with bulbs as they will emerge through the foliage. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Asperula Plant Care

Divide the creeping root system in spring or early summer after flowering. Separate into rooted sections and then replant immediately. Spent foliage can be cut back after flowering and new growth will appear at the base of the plant. May need supplemental watering during drought conditions.
