need ideas for under birch trees
I crossposted this under trees also but I thought the companion planting forum would be a good place also.
I am needing suggestions. My husband dug out the sod around two clump birch. I was going to add some good topsoil then plant all annuals ie... geranium, petunia, vinca, anyway mostly a mass planting of color.
When at the garden store the lady there who really did seem to be very knowledgable told me I would have trouble getting anything to grow there because of the surface roots of the birch trees. She said maybe a very hardy daylily. There is only the lightest of shade from the the trees as they aren't big enough for much shade.
Although not the look I was going for daylilys may be just fine. I am flexable and would appreciate any other suggestions or comments.
