What can I grow under my maple tree?

11 days ago

I've been thinking about my landscaping and wondering if there is anything I can successfully plant under a mature red maple tree. The canopy is wide and dense, and the ground is covered in roots. I can dig holes between the roots, but do mature trees send out feeder roots? I'd love to brighten the area with some shade loving perennials. I'm in zone 5b. Thanks!
