What is good succession planting to mayapple in native woodlands
When we moved in, I cleared out some of the English ivy that had run over our back slope. Last year I had a beautiful stand of mayapple, native to our MD woodlands underneath one beech tree at the bottom of the slope (damper/shadier than the top). What can I plant in conjunction with this as the mayapple does not last the summer and I do not want ivy and other weeds/invasives moving in. Would prefer a native plant, but anything rather than ivy! Thanks.
