     Pachysandra procumbens - Allegheny Spurge

    Pachysandra procumbens is a favored perennial groundcover for several reasons. Firstly, it’s a slow grower and therefore low maintenance. This member of the Box family also offers a more elegant look than many groundcovers, making it attractive for landscaping. In addition, it's tolerant of full shade as well as periods of drought. This species is often preferred over its cousin, Pachysandra terminalis, due to its less aggressive growth rate and pattern.

    Known by its common name, Allegheny spurge, this plant reaches an average height between six and 12 inches, and can spread to a width of one to two feet. The growth tends to a clumping nature, rather than typical spreading. At times, the roots may travel underground and pop up with a new plant a few feet away. The three-inch leaves are bluish-green, often accented with highlights of purple and white, giving them a more festive look than typical groundcover. Pachysandra flowers in early spring, producing tiny white to light green to pale pink blooms which grow in spikes two to four inches long. These dainty, fragrant columns dot the surface of the leaf mat, enhancing its ornamental value.

    Pachysandra procumbens is native to the southeastern United States, and grows best in USDA hardiness zones 5 through 9. The leaves are evergreen in warmer climes, and deciduous in the colder zones. This plant loves well-drained, acidic soil, and thrives in partial shade. It works wonderfully in a variety of landscaping applications, particularly under trees which offer sun-dappled shade. It also serves as ideal ornamental groundcover beside walkways, along building foundations, and as an accent around shrubbery. With its low maintenance, showy appearance and tolerant nature, Allegheny spurge brings a lovely yet simple element to any area which needs extra coverage. Your plant will arrive well protected and ready to place into your dream landscape.
