Planting around maple tree roots
I'd like to know what kind of flower you could suggest I plant around the roots of a maple tree in New England. Since big weeds grow there, I prefer to dig them out and put in some sort of ground cover, flower with some soil and mulch. It would look much nicer. Please advise, the area gets mostly sun during the day, a good deal of it. thank you for your article about this!
