Black Walnut Plants

Plantings underneath black walnut can be a challenge. There are a number of lists of what plants survive, but there are often discrepancies between lists. In an effort to documents what plants have survived under our black walnut, I've decided to make a list and update it regularly. We've surely overplanted the area, but we tend to plant a bunch of plants and see which ones make it.
