Remember this about pachysandra: The first year it sleeps, the second year it creeps, and the third year it leaps. It takes a year to get established before spreading out. It will make a thick, dense bed and is the perfect solution around tree trunks and where sunlight is scarce and mowing difficult.

MAINTENANCE: Pachysandra are planted 6-12 inches apart in spring in prepared soil with organic matter added. Top dress planted beds yearly with compost and/or fertilizers. Prune back or mow in spring whenever plantings need to be renovated. During dry periods water by giving a 1 inch soaking, rather than light sprinklings. Newly planted pachysandra requires mulch, but it grows so quickly after the first year that not much, if any mulch is required later.
