We've got a very long tree patch at the back border of our front yard facing west. I just spent this weekend thrashing it up as it were to prepare it for... well, SOMETHING better than what it looks like. I'm taking trees out (adolescents and less, we're talking it would be a giant trunk if something wasn't done!) and fighting a grueling battle with honeysuckle, but seem to be coming out on top.
Now, there will obviously be trees remaining and they should provide ample cover for the better part of the day for the front cover area (reminder - it faces west so the sun only gets to it later). I'd say about 5-7 hours of direct sunlight in the later portion of the day (mid-spring to mid-fall). To my main question though; this IS a long tract, about 80' or more. Not much depth, but very long. Before anyone can crack the inevitable 'spaghetti plant' joke, is there anything i can plant in spaces that would survive the area and spread of it's own accord? Flowering, preferable. I've seen a brochure on the Wave Spreading Petunias and they look like they could do a good job with a good look, but they seem to require more sun than they're going to get.
Or am i off? Any other ideas?
