What types of flowering plants grow best underneath a cedar tree?

Question by Momof2: What types of flowering plants grow best underneath a cedar tree?
I have built a flower garden underneath a cedar tree in my backyard. I plan on filling it up with flower friendly soil, and planting some sort of flowers plant in it. This way I don’t have to worry about roots from the tree interfering with the roots of the flowers. What types of flowering plants will grow well underneath a cedar tree? I would even like to have greenery suggestions too, as flowers may not be able to grow underneath the constant shade of my cedar…Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks!

    Common Sense has a good shade plant list. I was definitely thinking hostas, impatiens, and coleus. Some more to add to that list would be daffodils for early spring, columbine for early summer to early fall, my personal favorite flower the bleeding heart, and lamium to round out some perennials for you.
