A vigorous ground cover for partially shaded, moist areas with slightly acidic soil. Tiny, white, star-shaped flowers appear in late spring above a carpet of green foliage. The bright green leaves are fragrant when crushed and are finely cut, making this plant beautiful even when not in bloom. Use it to edge pathways, as an underplanting for large shrubs, to hide dying bulb foliage, or in naturalized areas.
