pachysandra Green Carpet
Pachysandra terminalis 'Green Carpet", commonly called Japanese pachysandra, is a shrubby, evergreen ground cover that spreads by rhizomes to form a dense carpet of rich, dark green foliage. Oval leaves (2-4" long) appear primarily in whorls at the stem ends. Tiny white flowers in 1-2" long, terminal (hence the species name) spikes bloom in early spring.
'Green Carpet' is a more compact form (grows to 6-8" tall) which produces darker green leaves with shinier surfaces.
Extremely popular ground cover for a variety of shady locations in the landscape including areas under trees, foundations, around shrubs or along walkways. Mass on banks or slopes.
Plant size: #1 (2.55 qts) 4-5 plants per pot
