Is that Pachysandra ??
A good ground cover plant, especially in shadey areas.

I hope someone else can help too :-)))

Be careful with the euphorbias, Numbaten....they can cause skin irritation if you get the white sap from the stems on your skin....wear gardening I right with this one, Andrewr?? Or am I mixing it up with something else???

Bscott - you are right. All euphorbias exude the white sap from broken stems
