The following group of plants contains only the most common types which have proved successful for ground cover under large trees and in heavily shaded situations on lawns. It is best for most of these plants to have as a basis for their growth good soil, although some of them, such as the periwinkle and the Japanese spurge, will grow under extreme conditions of light soil with little moisture. For the greatest success with this list of plants they should be well moistened during dry spells. For supplementary information on ground-cover plants, in shaded locations, see sub-group No. XXXI-C.
