This is the perfect for growing in dense shade or under a tree for a dependable groundcover. Topped with small, creamy white flowers in early spring, Japanese Spurge forms an attractive dense carpet of glossy foliage. A native of Japan, it is useful as a groundcover in a shrub border or in mass in the woodland garden. Works well in high erosion areas to bind the soil and land to reduce further loss.
Plant in part sun to full shade. Prefers a moist, well-drained, acidic soil, but is tolerant of periodically dry soils as long as they are well-drained.
