Soil: Prefers moist, well-drained, but tolerates a wide range of soils, even poor and sandy/dry if regularly watered during times of drought.
Light: Sun tolerant in cool northern zones. In hot summer areas, plant in dappled to deep shade.
Water: Best with regular water - weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Tolerates dry shade once plants are established.
Spacing: 12 to 18 inches apart, which is what most gardeners do. In two to three years, the pachysandra will completely cover the planting bed. Plant 4-6" apart, and by the end of the first year, the bed will be completely covered.
Fertilizing: Very adaptable, and can survive in any well-drained soil. Mulch in between the plants when first planting. This is important to not only retain water, but to also keep the weeds out. After pachysandra fill in the area, you will not need to mulch any more.
Winterizing: A good 3" layer of shredded bark mulch will minimize the risk of winter burn.
Maintenance & pruning: Stems root into the ground readily, and the new plants that form may be easily moved to a new location in spring or early fall.
