Hostas under a willow tree--Yay or Nay?
Our very large willow tree (Bubba) is beautiful but I want to add more visual interest by planting several varieties of Hostas around the base of her, in particular, the Empress Wu. I'm concerned that the tree will take any/all moisture and nutrients away from the Hostas. I'm also planning on putting in several groupings of jonquils behind the tree (apporox. area--20X8). Thoughts?
