The Q&A Archives: Flowers For Under Blue Spruce Pines

Question: I have a Blue Spruce Pine in my front yard. I have pruned the tree and was wondering what types of plants or flowers would be able to grow underneath?

Answer: Unfortunately, this is probably not a very good location for flowers planted in the ground. The tree canopy will block rain and sun from reaching the ground and the roots will steal moisture and nutrients from the soil. You might be more successful planting flowers in a large container placed near the tree. I'm sorry I can't be more encouraging.
