What can I plant under a pine tree?
I have a huge pine tree up in my front yard that deposits long needles underneath the tree all year long, or at least they are always there. The tree also produces cones. Anyways, years ago I put stones around the tree area where all the needles fall and proceeded to 'spruce' it up a bit planting some type of perennial that was supposed to spread. It never did. I wondered if it was because I didn't plant enough to get it 'going' or what. It had some type of blue flower on it, but I can't remember the name.
Is there ANYTHING I can plant under this pine to kind of hide the huge needle mess? If not I'll leave it. I have no desire to rid of the needles all the time, that's for sure.
TIA for your help. If you need a picture I can post when tonight. Thanks again.
