Answer: Lithodora is a creeping ground cover so it is a good choice near your tree, however the roots will dry out quickly unless you plant them directly into the soil. Just heaping mulch over the roots won't protect them enough and the plants will die. If you have a large nursery pot of lithodora, why not unpot the plant and divide into smaller sections and then dig small holes in the ground and plant your new little divisions? You can divide the plant with a shovel. Just make sure that each division has both roots and tops attached. Small holes are much easier to dig than large ones! Best wishes with your lithodora.
