All you need to know about Pachysandra plants

Spring is a prime time for creating some of the most fabulous art there is—living plant appeal. And when planning your garden and yard you need to locate plants that fit all the different terrains of your location. Shady areas under trees are a challenge for those who had not been introduced to any of the Pachysandra plants. According to gardening experts these evergreen ground cover plants are historically native to North America and to Asia and do extremely well when given the shade, space, food and water they require.

They are plants that do well in secluded shady areas that do not have excessive activity around it and that direct sun is not a problem. Also, make certain that the soil is rich in organic matter and that the Pachysandra plants are not over or under watered. Also acidic values that range between 5.5 to 6.5 pH balance work best for pachysandra plants. Check your soil to make certain these charming plants survive and thrive.

Pachysandra plants recover slowly when put into stress filled environments such as extreme watering or lack of watering, low acids or human disruption to their delicate stems that tend to get damages easily. These plants also react to direct sun by turning brown and burning if exposed directly. Though hardy and easy to maintain you want to give your plants the best chance for success. There is no doubt that a sturdy ground cover can contribute to the beauty of your garden.

These plants are easily transplanted and can be planted at just about any time of the year as long as the ground is not frozen, plant in the late afternoon on a sunny day or when the skies are overcast. You will want to place a good amount of mulch and rich soil around the newly transplanted plant. You will however want to make sure that the new plants are spaced a good 12 to 14 inches apart. According to leading garden experts you can actually plant rooted pieces of Pachysandra in a loosely dug 3 to 5 inch deep hole and about 6 inches wide and line with stems along the bottom. Cover with the soil you removed for the hole and water generously for the next few weeks until the plants are well established. Maintain a moist soil without soaking and fertilize the pachysandra plantings just one time in the spring. You’ll also want to use a slow-release type of plant food in accordance to the size of the area you plant.

Once you have planted, watered, fed and fertilized, give the plants plenty of uninterrupted space and watch the blanket of beauty explode!
