What Can I Grow Under A Cedar Tree?

What plants or flowers can be grown under a cedar tree? Right now, there is just bare dirt because the grass will not grow there.

Hardiness Zone: 5a

You can grow an azaleas or any other acid loving plant.

What grew wild under the Western Red Cedars in Western Washington was a thing called False Lily of the Valley. It's perennial, a network of underground roots, and heartshaped leaves with tiny white flowers. I sure miss it. The cedar foliage shedding into the dirt gives off a toxin that prevents other things from growing.

Rhododendrons, Azalias, just to name a couple. Google acid-loving plants and shrubs.
