It’s a bit unconventional, but when I saw this big petunia plant thriving in a tree trunk it caught my eye. Horticulturally, this is not recommended practice for any tree you are trying to save, but it’s an interesting idea for utilizing an old stump. The simplest way to do this would be to simply buy a basket of petunias and transplant them in the opening
Cottinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ (Smoke Bush)... considered a tree but I grow it as a shrub, whacking it back hard each spring to keep the height lower and make it bush out. easily grows 7-8' tall in a season. glows purple with the sun behind it.
Love... Lily-of-the-valley is a tough, low-care groundcover you can plant in shady spots. It has a lovely fragrance and nodding white or pink bell-shape flowers. There is also a variegated leaf variety.
