If you’re not sure what to plant under pine trees to spruce up your rental property, we have the perfect idea! Not many flowers do well under pine trees. Many landlords just add some mulch and be done with it. Yet, well pruned pine trees with flowers beneath them are beautiful. The pine trees’ needles increase the acid in the soil, so few plants can even survive.
Creeping phlox loved the increased acid in the soil. It’s suitable for hardiness zones 4 through 8 and is beautiful! Creeping phlox forms a large mass of color in the spring with a long bloom. Plus, they’re deer resistant! To plant under pine trees, merely rake up the needles where you want to plant the phlox. Never add different soil. If you want to add just organic matter like compost, that is fine. Use shallow holes and keep them level with the ground. Use the pine needles you raked up as the mulch. You only need to water if the phlox are wilting, but only water in the morning. That way the leaves have time to dry. Remember, these are perennials, so they’ll be back next year too. If you need to divide them, do that in early spring.
