Under Spruce Trees - Revisited
My new yard has some huge spruce trees. We have had the discussion about what grows right under a spruce tree (nothing) but my situation is a little different and I am looking for some ideas. My trees are so huge that on some of them the limbs don't start for 10-15 feet up. So underneath it's not even full shade.
It's a little dry and probably pretty acidic, but grass grows (about half as fast as the rest of the yard). Does anyone know some good part-shade, acid tolerant plants that would likely do well in the general vicinity? I don't care what size or shape. Maybe ferns or something? Maybe it would be too dry for ferns? I think I have seen a nice prickly-looking groundcover under pine trees (not fallen needles, LOL!).
