    You can go to any lawn and garden web site or to a local green house. They should be able to give you any information on that.

    Your local garden center should be able to help, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. I had the same problem, so I planted some hosta plants, several varieties, and mulched around them. They love the shade and multiply each year, so soon they will encircle the tree. Beautiful!

    Take a walk in the woods, or through your neighborhood. Look at what plants are growing in the understory or beneath trees in the landscapes of your neighbors.
