Japanese Spurge
Pachysandra terminalis ‘Green Sheen’

Print Plant


Japanese Spurge is one of the most widely planted groundcovers of all time. Plants spread to form a thick, durable patch of evergreen leaves. This outstanding selection has extremely glossy foliage, a little smaller than the usual form. Plants are slower to fill but more tolerant of hot climates. Space at 10 to 40 plants/square yard (8 to 12 inches apart) for a reasonably quick fill. Clumps may be divided every 4 to 5 years, in spring or early fall.
