Plants That Can Survive Near a Black Walnut Tree?

I just had a black walnut tree cut down and the stump ground down, can you tell me what tree I can plant in it's place that would flower in the spring or summer? Can I plant a crape myrtle tree?

Peter Loewer (sp?) used to have a list of plants that will live under walnut trees on his website. You might google his name or "the wild gardener" and see if it is still there.

Good luck!

Incidentally, my extension agent just told me that walnut trees are an indicator of good soil and growing conditions. I didn't know that, but should mean that whatever you can get to grow on the site will have a good chance of doing well.

At least two productive herbs grow under a black walnut tree; caraway seed and tarragon, where others will not. Also, I have found red beets, black beets, and red lettuce will grow well.

I am wondering about other folks who might be dealing with black walnut trees. Has anyone found anything that grew well around them?
