Under Walnuts

Asked May 15, 2020, 11:23 AM EDT

I am looking for shade plants that THRIVE under black walnuts. I have the list of tolerant plants. The only successes I've had so far are epimedium (my favorite) and euonymus (which I tolerate). The list that does well short term and then die includes astilbe, hostas, solomon seal.

Here's a link to an article from Penn State. The plants on the list are tolerant to Black Walnut. I'm not sure any plants will truly thrive near black walnut trees.
