Galax urceolata

galax

Galax is spectacular evergreen groundcover that is worthy of much greater landscape use. In spring flower spikes adorned with tiny white flowers rise above the 9-12” tall clusters of glossy dark green leaves. The glossy round leaves of galax often turn a beautiful burgundy color in winter. Galax grows best in cool, moist, well-drained acidic soil. It is slow to propagate and establish, but can eventually form a dense carpet in the woodland garden. Galax is very shade tolerant and grows well with Gaultheria procumbens, Vaccinium pallidum, Rhododendron maximun, Gaylussacia baccata, Kalmia latifolia, Uvularia species and Iris cristata.
