Product Description

Pachysandra terminalis is a slow growing groundcover with alternate, simple leaves, and creeping stems. The flowers are white, borne in late March and throughout the month of April. It is evergreen but the leaves may yellow in winter and is very cold hardy. When group planted, the plant forms a dense carpet of glossy green leaves to a height of 6 - 10 inches. Pachysandra terminalis grows in sun and partial to deep shade. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil in full shade that is both acidic and rich and so a peaty soil with fertiliser applied is suitable. However, the plant is tolerant of periodically dry soils and is tolerant of soils of neutral to slightly alkaline pH. Pachysandra terminalis can be propagated by dividing and transplanting clumps, by rooting stem cuttings, or by removing plantlets that have grown through the spread of roots from the main plant. It takes about three years to establish a groundcover with plants spaced between 6 and 12 inches apart.

    These plants were shipped beautifully and never missed a beat going in the ground. I was so happy I bought another 48. If I could, I’d plant my whole yard!!!

    Pachysandra, aka Japanese Spurge

    Arrived with box damage both ends. However bubble plastic inside above and below Spurge protected the 100 plants ordered! Due to hot weather waited three days to plant. Did water in container a little. Left in pots in shade the Spurge stood up looking healthy. Very easy to plant, done in two days. Aware of aggressive plant put in confined locations. Quite pleased!
