I live in Spring Hill, TN and have a line of established trees on one side of my front lawn. I would like to plant flowering plants, shrubs, etc. between the trees. Are there any plants that will live?

Shrubs and perennials might have a difficult time competing with the tree roots so plant as far away from the canopy of the trees as possible. You can grow azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias, spicebush, hostas, astilbe, euonymus and all kinds of shade loving annuals and perennials. Take care to water them regularly so they get their fair share of moisture. Best wishes with your garden!
