Sweet woodruff, Galium odoratum.

Sweet woodruff, Galium odoratum.
Prolific in Ardinamir.
As the epithet odoratum suggests, the plant is strongly scented, the sweet scent being derived from coumarin. This scent increases on wilting and then persists on drying, and the dried plant is used in pot-pourri and as a moth deterrent
