Woodruff is so pretty and I planted just one plant a couple years ago and now well...it is a bit of a mess.<br><br>
Besides smelling really nice does it have any other use?<br><br>
I can't describe the scent. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

What do you mean it's a mess? Is it spreading too much? You can mow it.

It is in my garden, I can't mow it there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
It seems to spread like mint does only more slowly.

abimommy, woodruff has very shallow roots. Just rip it out where you don't want it. You could pot some & give it to friends or sell it at a yardsale. It's an effective ground cover, a naturalized "native". Don't be afraid to walk on it either, it will take it or die.
