What to plant around trees and stump?
Need ideas of what perennials to plant around trees and stump in front yard:
1. One small stump, full sun, raised mound. There's a little bird bath on it and white lamium/nettle around it. Either the full sun heat killed half of it last year or the lawn guy hacked it. Split lamium or go with something else?
2. Under white dogwood, sunny now then part sun, raised mound. Pachysandra planted a few years ago not doing well at all. Impatiens didn't do well b4 that. Lamium? Vinca? What else? Perhaps something evergreen in winter.
3. Under huge maple, dense shade, depressed spot at low pitch. Don't know what kind, small bright green maple leaves with clusters of tiny berry pink flowers. I guess it will be dry shade come summer but in spring very wet, saturated. At the moment, a ring of hostas, little grass beyond that. What else will grow there? Lily of the valley? Goat's beard? Brunnera? Foam? A late blooming hellebore? Don't know if anything will flower under there nor rot in spring.
The last tree is evergreen with pachysandra happily growing underneath it. Thanks in advance.
