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 conifers 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.

To begin, CGC did everything right. Ordering went smoothly and was even flagged for possible cold weather damage to plants. I received informative updates at every stage of the very quick shipment.
The plants arrived in great shape! I ordered the same plants... Read full review >

The roots were moist and beautiful as well as the foliage. They were planted the next day and look so healthy after one week in the ground and lots of rain. I feel so lucky. Many thanks.

I received the plants and thought that there were not 50 root plants until I opened and counted. They came very healthy. I fall planted and can't wait to see them in the spring.

The plants I did receive were great healthy plants, but I was shorted 5 plants. That’s 10% of my order. When I have sent emails, I get no response. Communication is just as important as the quality of merchandise.
