Shade Garden Design
Tough perennials for underplanting a tree.
Plant this shade garden under th canopy of a mature shade tree or under the developing canopy of a newly planted Weeping Cherry.
To avoid damaging the tree’s roots, add a least six inches of well composted soil around the base of the tree before planting.
Use a posthole digger to make planting a quick and easy task.
Be sure to keep mulch or soil at least one foot away from the base of the tree trunk.
