Evaluating Shade Groundcovers
I'm considering using all three of these ground covers in an area with high, afternoon shade, under decidious trees (sugar and red maple, black locust, wild cherry): Waldsteinia fragarioides, Pachysandra procumbens, and Chrysogonum virginianum. I will be adding larger perennials, such as hosta, daylilies, salvias, etc.
Please share your thoughts and experience:-) How well will they do planted together? How will they do with the larger perennials? How well will they supress weeds when they get established? Will afternoon shade be enough shade for them?
