Sweet Woodruff Under a Pine Tree


Anonymous added on May 25, 2014 | Answered

I am looking for ground cover options for an area under a pine tree that is mostly in the shade. Sweet Woodruff and Snow on the Mountain were possibilities but I was concerned about the pine tree issues. What could you suggest?

Pine trees tend to have acidic soil, but most plants can handle the acidity. The real problem will be the fact that the tree will suck up all the water. You will need to make sure the plants under the tree get extra water to offset this. Those plants should do fine.
