Answer: Unfortunately, very few plants will grow in this type of location. The pine provides shade and also blocks rain from reaching the ground, the roots also steal moisture and nutrients. You might be able to grow a rhododendron there, but it will be difficult to establish it due to the root competition. For this reason you might want to consider using something other than a plant to improve the view. Perhaps a nice high backed bench or sculptural piece would do the job?
