At my pond I have an arrangement of some azalea, pieris and now I finally bought a tree... it was a japanese willow.
As u know the tree has a lovely crown but the stem is kinda boring... naked. So I was thinking, is it a good idea to cover the area below the willow with some grass, fern or perhaps stone? Because as it is now, its simply not nice to look at.
Whenever I want to "hide" something or make it look interesting I usually use ferns... but this willow has full sun most of the day....:( Ferns dont like that...
What do ya think?
