Looking for colorful, creative ways to use my new planter bed (soon to be more) that are covered by a huge tree in our backyard. Love the texture of the huge leaves.

Deep shade. Large evergreen or deciduous trees with low branches, such as Norway spruce, American hemlock, and eucalyptus, cast deep shade. The soil under these trees is often filled with mature tree roots. Only a few plants, such as moss, will grow well under these challenging conditions.
