Growing perennials under a soft maple tree
I live in Zone 5 and have a huge Soft Maple in my yard. What flowering or other perennials will grow well under it?

Maples are greedy trees, sucking up all the water and nutrients in the soil and generally making it uninhabitable for other plants. I have had success under maples with shallow-rooted spring bulbs and some groundcovers.
