What to plant under Maple trees
I have Red, Shantung and Amur maple trees in my yard. I planted hostas under them & I found out the hard way how difficult it is to dig under maples and how difficult it is for the hostas to grow (my Japanese maple doesn't seem to be posing any problems). I love my maples, but they'd look even better with something growing under them (besides grass or weeds which never seem to have any problems). Does anyone have any ideas for something that could cope with root competition. I suppose I could always put something in pots underneath, but that doesn't appeal to me much.
