them. Making Alleghany pachysandra a very attractive plant.
The fragrant white flower plumes bloom in May and are 2 to four inches long.They rise above the foliage before the new seasons growth.The plant spreads by rhizomes growing about 6 to 9 inches tall. Allegany pachysandra grows best in moist rich soil in shady or partially shadedarea.
