I'd like to plant vinca minor under a maple, in close to full shade (gets light in the early morning). Will this work?

How deep does the soil have to be to create good home for vinca? This area is choked with roots.

Also, will it be hard to remove the vinca if I ever change my mind?

Thanks.

Vinca will work under your tree. You won't have to dig very deep to plant it. Now, this is an invasive plant in many areas, and it can be hard to remove. I would suggest you look at one of your universities website and go to their horticulture section to see if it is an invasive in your area before you plant it. It is very invasive here, and I would personally never plant it anywhere.

Vinca will laugh at that maple. People usually have a harder time getting rid of it so I've heard Rolling on the floor laughing
