Pachysandra terminalis

Common Name: Japanese Spurge

Pachysandra has long been a favorite groundcover for the shade. It is prized for its clean, evergreen foliage and speed of colonization once established. Pachysandra can be grown on slopes or level ground, which makes it an ideal candidate for shady river banks or under trees. In early to mid spring, bottle brush-like, white flowers are produced above the new growth.
