One may also ask, what grows under shade in trees?
Some of the more popular shade- and root-tolerant woodland plants include understory shrubs such as oakleaf hydrangea, azaleas, euonymus, variegated aucuba, soft-tip yucca, nandina, many hollies, mahonia, and spirea. These generally do very well, as you can see from a drive around any older, established neighborhoods.
Will ferns grow under trees?
Ferns. Go for wintergreen ferns: they tend to be much more drought-tolerant than deciduous ferns that die away in autumn. The two best for deep shade and drier soil are Dryopteris and the Asplenium. This strong and upright fern has crozier-shaped new fronds (like fiddle necks) that appear as the bluebells open in May.
