Botanical name: Galium odoratum
Woodruff, also called "fragrant" or "Woodruff" starlet, is an herbaceous perennial from Europe and Western Asia.
It grows especially in shady areas in the woods of beech and deciduous trees between 400 and 1600 meters above sea level. Medium-sized white flowers are grouped in inflorescences with the stem.
Known for its fragrance when dried or withered, the dried leaves of this herb can be for example used as natural moth repellent for cabinets.
In Alsace, it is customary to put the grass soaked in white wine to prepare "maitrank", a typical drink.
