Pachysandra is a perennial flowering herb that grows from 4 to 9 inches in height. Generally grown as a ground cover in shady gardens, pachysandra blooms in small white or pink flowers in March, April and May. This is a low-maintenance plant that requires only an annual application of fertilizer in the spring.
Sprinkle granular fertilizer on the soil around the pachysandra at the rate suggested on the package for the size of your pachysandra bed. Do not get fertilizer on the foliage, as it may burn it.
Use a hand cultivator or gardening fork to scratch the fertilizer in to the top 1 inch of soil.
Water the pachysandra bed until the top 2 inches of soil is wet.
