Galium odorata is a perennial borne in a mountain forest, the stem erecting 20-30cm tall with a whorl of six to ten leaves around it. This species closely resembles G. japonica in shape. The difference lies mainly in the leaf and flower shape; with plate, in G. odorata, it is oblong, while in G. japonica lanceolate, and with flower, in the former, the corolla is funnel-shaped, while the other not.
