Today we have two groundcovers in bloom.  In front of D&M there is a small planting of Allegheny Spurge {Pachysandra procumbens}, a native deciduous groundcover that has attractive white flowers above bright green foliage.  Under the Korean Mountain Ash {Sorbus alnifolia} at the southwest corner of Speare Hall is a planting of Candytuft {Iberis sempervirens}.  This evergreen groundcover has clusters of showy white flowers and often blooms a second time in very late fall, sometimes the flowers will last into December.  As soon as this flowering is past I will be cutting back the Candytuft to eliminate the legginess.
