Perennial Plant of the Week - Alleghany Pachysandra

Yesterday, I was out taking advantage of a beautiful, but windy day by getting outdoors. I was searching for photos for future programs and upcoming BYGL Alerts as we inch closer and closer to winter. One plant that I wanted to highlight was pachysandra. But not the Japanese pachysandra (Pachysandra terminalis) that is more commonly planted and likely more familiar to many in comparision to the Alleghany pachysandra (Pachysandra procumbens). This plants is also called mountain spruge or Alleghany spruge.
