Pachysandra terminalis 'Silver Edge' is an evergreen, semi-woody, perennial ground cover with medium green, oval leaves that are edged in creamy white. The upper third of each leaf is coarsely serrated. Pachysandra 'Silver Edge' has small white fragrant flower clusters in early spring. Its spread is minimal the first year until plants are established, after which it can spread fairly quickly. Pachysandra 'Silver Edge' can be used to brighten areas under trees, including pines, and in dense shade.
Also known as Variegated Japanese Spurge, Pachysandra terminalis 'Silver Edge' prefers partial to full shade and moist, well-drained soil. It likes humus-rich soil, but it tolerates dry soil and clay soil.
