:What plants are poisonous to eastern box turtles? Are pachysandras poisonous?

I do not recall ever seeing pachysandra on a toxic plants list, HOWEVER, keep in mind that most toxic plant lists are documenting toxicity to humans, not animals.
That having been said, go ahead and check the archives if you haven't already, there are good suggestions on there.
Also, there is a native pachysandra called Allegheny Spurge which is closely related to Japanese Spurge (which is commonly used as a ground cover), so my thinking would be that either would be acceptable.
My personal feeling is that by using native plants you have nature working in your favor, but there are others with more experience who may be of a different opinion.
Good luck!
