Commonly known as sweet woodruff, hay plant, kiss-me-quick, mugwet, rockweed, sweet grass, woodruff, bedstraw, sweet-scented bedstraw, May grass, our lady’s lace, sweet white woodruff or Waldmeister (“Master of the Forest”), this species has more common names than a three-toed sloth has toes (and begs the question as to why they aren’t called twelve-toed sloths).
As you might have discerned from the common names, it is indeed sweetly-scented, and laced with the smell of fresh-mown hay. I had recently read that it has edible flowers (with a taste of “sweet, nutty, vanilla”), so I tried some yesterday – I’ll stick to eating sweets, nuts and vanilla.
