It’s an evergreen ground cover that forms a dense carpet of dark green, rich foliage that measures 8” to 12” inches high. The leaves are oval-shaped grow to be 2” to 4” inches and emerge in whorls at the end of stems.
The small white flowers bloom in early spring and measure 1” to 2” inches long when in full bloom. The petite flowers bring elegance to any yard or garden.
Popular uses for Pachysandra are ground cover for a wide range of locations that are shady such as around shrubs, foundations, walkways, and under trees.

The green leaves create a lush environment that adds to total landscape design or looks great on its own. Due to its resilience, Pachysandra does well in cool climates and survives throughout the winter season.
