Pachysandra and labyrinth

This ground cover is Pachysandra, probably the non-native Pachysandra terminalis. It's in the courtyard of St. John's Church at 6th & Ferry Street. There is another Pachysandra that is native to Indiana which can also be used as a ground cover under shade trees, that is Pachysandra procumbens. The tree in the picture is a flowering dogwood tree (Cornus florida). If you look at the tree right now you find the buds for next spring's flowers at the tips of all the twigs.
