One of the best and most versatile evergreen grasses, this will thrive in sun or shade, and glows shades of copper, gold and bronze in the autumn, hence its common name, Pheasant’s Tail Grass. It has a soft, arching habit, so plant it among shrubs for textural contrast, or in a mixed or herbaceous border.

The Best Grass for Shade Around Pine Trees | If you live in an area with hot summers and mild winters, choose tall fescues, St. Augustine or zoysia grass for shady areas.  Pine trees thrive in acidic soils, and fallen pine needles raise soil acidity further. Your grass has a better chance of thriving if you remediate high soil acidity by raking up fallen pine needles regularly and testing pH levels. If the pH is below 6.0, apply lime or other alkaline fertilizer to help balance the soil.

Lilyturf (Liriope) is an easy-to-grow favorite shade plant. Loved for its grassy foliage and spikes of blue or white flowers in late summer, as well as its resistance to deer and rabbits, lilyturf is practically a plant-it-and-forget garden resident. It grows best in Zones 5-10 and grows a foot tall.
