Plant Number: 7.405.100  
Variegated Japanese Spurge
Pachysandra terminalis ‘Variegata’

Print Plant


This handsome variegated form of Japanese Spurge is very slow growing. Foliage is green with a creamy-white edge, bearing spikes 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 6 to 8 inches apart. A truly classy shade groundcover, well worth the time and effort to get it established.
