This plant produces beautiful, sweet scented yellow flowers from midsummer into autumn. As the name suggests, Lady’s bedstraw was used to stuff mattresses and pillows to give them a pleasant scent. The flowers retain their scent when dried and were used to make a yellow dye that was added to butter and cheese. Also good for ground cover. Plant in almost any type of soil in full sun/part shade.
