  1. Pachysandra terminalis

    Pachysandra terminalis is a species of flowering plant in the boxwood family Buxaceae, native to Japan, Korea and China. It is a slow-growing, spreading evergreen perennial growing to 10 cm tall by 60 cm broad, with alternate, simple, glossy leaves, and creeping stems. The leaves may yellow in winter. When growing in a spreading mass of many plants, a dense carpet is formed. The flowers are white, borne above the foliage. In temperate Northern Hemisphere sites they appear late in the month of March and throughout the month of April. The plant is very cold hardy. The specific epithet terminalis means "ending", and refers to the clusters of leaves which appear at the end of the short stems.
