It is difficult to plant under mature pines because the trees are such tough competition. Sometimes you can establish a ground covering blanket of English ivy with some spring bulbs growing up through it. Alternatively, perhaps this would be a good spot for a bench and a large container such as a half barrel of colorful annuals.
