A flower with many uses over the centuries around the world, the name is from how it was used in medieval Europe to stuff mattresses.

Galium verum, commonly known as Lady's Bedstraw or Yellow Bedstraw, is a wildflower native to Europe and parts of Asia.
This perennial herb is well-known for its bright yellow, star-shaped flowers, which add a cheerful and vibrant touch to gardens.
Lady's Bedstraw is a low-growing plant, typically reaching a height of 12 to 24 inches (30-60 cm), with slender stems and narrow leaves.
It earned its name from its historical use as a stuffing material in mattresses, as its sweet scent was believed to promote restful sleep.
The plant is a valuable nectar source for pollinators like bees and butterflies, making it a great addition to wildlife-friendly gardens.
Lady's Bedstraw is also appreciated for its herbal uses. It has been used traditionally for its mild diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Gardeners can use this plant as ground cover or in rock gardens, where its delicate appearance adds charm.
It thrives in well-drained, sandy soils and prefers full sun to partial shade.
Seeds can be sown directly in the garden in the spring or fall, and the plant readily self-seeds for naturalizing.
Lady's Bedstraw is an excellent choice for cottage gardens, meadows, and natural landscaping projects.
