I have a weeping mulberry tree in the middle of my front yard. I would like to plant flowers or ground cover for under the tree...suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Your question doesn't indicate where you live or in what USDA Zone you live. There are many shade-tolerant plants that you could grow under your mulberry tree. Do you prefer annuals, perennials, or a mix of the two?  You could also use our plant encyclopedia to search for plants that would grow in shade in your specific zone. Go to and use the advanced search function to search for plants with shade tolerance, hardy to your zone, and in whatever colors and heights that you prefer.
