Scenes From Gardens Past: Pachysandra 2006

Photograph of pachysandra.

Pachysandra is not considered an exciting plant. It's seen as dull. Tough. Utilitarian. Overused. Cliched. George Schenk, in The Complete Shade Gardener, refers to it as "ubiquitous and boring".

But he also calls it "indispensable." And when I look at this photo, I think that overused or not, it's beautiful.
