Winter creeper woes

Zone GA. 30009 | Anonymous added on May 14, 2018 | Answered

I planted the evergreen variety of winter creeper as ground cover in a fairly shady area of my garden and many of my bulbs are not coming up this year. I have not seen my bleeding hearts or Canadians and usually I would by this time of year. What can I do to help them? Do I need to dig up the bulbs and plant them in a pot in the garden or cut away the creeper where the bulbs are? I appreciate your insight! Amy Wilbanks

Yes, the Wintercreeper may be an issue. It can smother out native plants and even kill shrubs and trees.
Moving your plants may be the easier option.
