Serviceberry--groundcover and plantings underneath?
Hi everyone! I planted a beautiful 8 ft serviceberry in my yard this spring in northern Indianapolis. It seems to be doing well, and I am now trying to research what to plant underneath the drip line area.
In terms of the site, it is certainly part shade, only receiving a few hours of sunlight a day. Most serviceberry I see are sunny spots where wildflower perennials can be grown beneath it, but I don't think that will be true for me due to the lighting. We are also on fairly heavy clay soils, and I also very much love native plants and wildlife plantings.
I have various types of mint that I am hoping will spread over time; however, what are some other good shade options that will look nice? I am open to flowers, grasses, sedges, etc.
Thanks for the input!
