Pachysandra terminalis

Print Plant

  

Japanese Spurge is the most widely planted evergreen groundcover. Plants form an attractive low patch of shiny dark-green leaves, bearing clusters of white flowers in spring. Excellent under trees and in nearly any other shady site. Tolerates poor soil, but slow to establish and spread. Space closely, at 10 to 40 plants per square yard in order for plants to fill in reasonably quickly.
