Pachysandra terminalis-Japanese Spurge

Propagating Pachysandra can be done either in the spring or fall by dividing the clumps and transplanting. Pachysandra prefers a slightly acidic soil and will do well in poor soil but prefers a fertile soil and will yellow if exposed to too much sun, so it prefers shade. Its flower is white and insignificant in the spring but do not plant near Euonymous because it is susceptible to Euonymous scale and voles/moles tunneling through the soil damaging the roots. It reaches a height of 12", is deer resistant, and is evergreen.
