Japanese Spurge

Pachysandra terminalis

The RHS AGM award winning Pachysandra terminalis is perfect for carpeting bare areas of earth between deciduous shrubs or trees. With rosettes of glossy, dark green leaves with serrated edges they form dense mats of eye catching ground cover in sun or shade. In early summer upright clusters of tiny, white flowers contrast beautifully with the dark green foliage.
