shrub for near/under sugar maple
I have a huge sugar maple in my front yard with nothing else near it and would love to plant either evergreen or deciduous shrubs to create interest.
What has been successful under these conditions (dry shade, competing roots and poor drainage) ?? And how far should I go out to start my "digging".
A landscaper recommended sweet bay magnolia virginata and epimedium as ground cover.. any thoughts ??
