The Q&A Archives: cedars

Question: What plants will do well under cedars? I know ferns and hosta do fine. Some daylilies I put under them are doing ok. What else is there?

Answer: I've had great success growing the following under my cedar trees:
Vinca minor (ground cover)
Mahonia nervosa (Low Oregon Grape)
Polystichum munitum (Western Sword Fern)
Vancouveria (Inside-out Flower)
Lonicera (Honeysuckle Species)
Vaccinium parvifolium (Red Huckleberry)
Vaccinium ovatum (Evergreen Huckleberry)
Sambucus (Elderberry)
Gaultheria Shallon (Salal)

Hope they do as well for you!
