Pachysandra procumbens, Allegheny spurge
Has anyone grown this? I am considering using it for a low-usage pathway in a part/mostly shade sideyard. Although its not native to Texas, or the plains/prairie, or the Southwest, its more native than its Asian cousin.
How would you describe its growth rate? I'm told its "not as aggressive" as the Asian variety, but does that mean slow or medium? Based on its growth rate, should I plant for immediate coverage and thin out later, or should I plant sparsely and wait for coverage? And if I decide later that I'm sick of it, is it removable or there for life?
