Northern Bedstraw: Galium boreale


Northern Bedstraw: Galium boreale (Galium boreale (Northern Bedstraw))

This is a sweet smelling 'weed' around here. I just love it, being the most fragrant during the start of July. The more sun, the more cloudy and white though it doesn't appear in wet areas.

A very attractive 'weed'. Is it very invasive?

A native that habits along disturbed areas. Keeping a garden with Galium close, you'll have seed in the garden each year. But against raw nature, its not very tough, little contained clumps. I love the sprays and the smell. I should try to collect seed heads this year. Spread that around. Its not introduced here. With the fresh earth behind me, I want more seed spreaders, get a nice meadow next year.
