Common Name: Pachysandra

Pachysandra is used as a groundcover, particularly under trees, where it competes well for the limited sun, nutrients and water. The plants are adapted to deep or partial shade. When planted in full sun, growth is poor. Pachysandra is one of the few plants that will grow under evergreens and in dense shade. The evergreen leaves of pachysandra commonly “burn” and turn brown when grown in sunny, exposed places during the winter.
