Pachysandra, commonly known as Japanese Spurge,
is a great ground cover for shady areas,
so we had planted it at our first little house in Virginia
and then again our current home here.
It's supposed to be an aggressive spreader,
but we had never seen that kind of behavior from it.
If anything, it's been a slow grower for us--painfully slow.

However, this summer, after a few years of it just sitting there,
it's started to show its true colors.
It's spreading, but from my perspective,
it's spreading in the wrong direction--right across my moss path,
not in the little bed I've cultivated for it.
I guess it's true what they say, be careful what you ask for.
