Pachysandra terminalis

Spurge

Pachysandra terminalis, or Spurge, has oval-shaped, shiny medium-green leaves forming a dense mat making it a wonderful groundcover choice. Fragrant, spiked white flowers will appear in spring adding even more interest. Use this vigorous groundcover under trees or shrubs where it will form a lovely green carpet. Plants spread by far-reaching underground runners to eventually cover large areas. Semi-evergreen in St Louis!
