Pachysandra terminalis

 

Japanese pachysandra

Japanese Pachysandra is an evergreen, mat forming, ground cover plant with glossy dark-green foliage. It bears spikes of small white flowers in summer. I think it is pretty boring as far as ground cover goes and will not spread well in dry conditions, but it's better than just chipped bark!
