Best grown in acidic, organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Plants thrive in a sun-dappled shade under large trees. Foliage tends to bleach when grown in too much sun. Established plants tolerate drought. For use as a ground cover, Pachysandra procumbens, commonly known as Allegheny spurge, is a shrubby, ground cover which grows 8-12″ tall and spreads indefinitely by rhizomes to form a dense carpet of matte blue-green leaves mottled with purple and white. It is native to woodlands from North Carolina and Kentucky south to Florida and Texas. 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. Woodland gardens. Native plant gardens.
