(aka: Pachysandra procumbens A1LA-005) Most Pachysandra procumbens in the trade are from cooler climates, so when we stumbled across this attractive clone near the gates of Louisiana's Angola Prison in spring 1999, we thought...well, we thought we'd better get the hell out of there, but not without a piece of this attractive heat-loving clone. After six years, this selection had made a stunning 4' wide clump in our garden, and subsequently became a 2006 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction. The new foliage on Pachysandra procumbens 'Angola' is heavily patterned pewter against the olive-green base color, making an attractive combination. Foliage matures to mostly green by summer. Starting in early March (NC), the patches are adorned with a stunning floral show of masses of sweetly fragrant 4" tall stalks of white, bottlebrush-like flowers. This is hands down the earliest and best flowering clone of Pachysandra procumbens we've ever seen...great when used as a groundcover in the woodland garden.
