Shiny Japanese Spurge {50 Bare Root plants}

'Green Sheen' is special due to the tremendous glossiness of its jade-green toothed foliage. Almost artificial in appearance, one might expect to see their reflection in its shimmering pool of green.

Once you have seen Green Sheen, you will never mistake it for other cultivars. If a rich, wet-waxy color is what you're after, this is the perfect plant.

Compare with variegated or regular Pachysandra.

Things to Note
Green Sheen is more tolerant of heat and humidity than other Pachysandras, making it a terrific choice for warmer regions or slightly less shaded areas.

While tolerant of some sun in northern zones, it needs shade in southern zones.

Gardener Tips
Green Sheen is a stunning pool of rich green when planted in large ovals around mature hardwood trees.

Additionally, consider planting her in mass under such flowering trees as Dogwood or Bradford Pears saving you from weed-eating around them.

If you are considering purchasing this plant in bare root form, please read about bare root plants so you know what to expect.
General information about Pachysandra terminalis (Japanese Spurge):
If you were fortunate to grow up near a forest, this plant will take you back to your childhood wanderings in wonderful woodlands. There is something so natural about this plant, gardeners find her irresistible when hoping to achieve a peaceful feeling.

Of course Pachysandra terminalis, commonly called Japanese Spurge, is also very practical given that it is self-sustaining, always attractive and evergreen year-round, and requires no grooming or pruning. In fact, once established, given shade and moisture, Japanese Spurge promises to eliminate the need for weeding and grass cutting. Essentially, your lawn work stops where this plant starts.

The jade-green veined, oval leaves (1 1/2 to 4 inch) have lightly-toothed edges and serve as a small platter for clusters of delicate creamy-white flowers that appear in the spring and early summer, and make a beautiful statement. This plant is used extensively under large spreading trees, behind buildings, or in other situations too shady for grass to grow. She will transform otherwise bare and ugly ground areas into a whimsical garden world where fairies and gnomes are sure to visit.

It is also very effective as a border plant, along paths, or as driveway edging. One of our most popular because of its maintenance-free nature, it is often chosen for its ability to grow under pine trees and in just about any other soil though its favorite is a shaded area with well-drained organically rich loam.

Once established, Japanese Spurge will spread moderately fast by underground rhizomes. Ultimately, this is a lush, lovely groundcover that offers character and a creative atmosphere to any garden.

Things to Note
Pachysandra often takes most of the first season getting established. Spreading will tend to be extremely slow at first and then commence in the second season following the age old adage, “First year she sleeps, second year she creeps, third year she leaps!”

While tolerant of some sun in northern zones, it needs shade in southern zones.

Gardener Tips
Pachysandra is an excellent ground cover for shady areas; overexposure to sun may cause it to turn yellow.
