Zone 8? | tburrows added on May 27, 2012 | Answered

I just ripped out a bunch for Juniper from around my Snowfountain weeping cherry and I want to nurse it back to looking good and growing healthy. Also, what type of small plants grow well around this tree? I want to plant a few small plants around my Snowfountain Weeping Cherry, whether it be ground cover, like Vinca or dwarf Azalea.

A balanced fertilizer would be best for this tree.

Around the base, anything that likes the shade and is relatively shallow rooted would be best. Vinca or dwarf azaleas would work. Hostas, lily of the valley and Solomon's seal would also work.
