PLANTING UNDER A BLACK WALNUT TREE

All parts of a black walnut tree contain juglone, including leaves and fruits. … It exudes a chemical called
juglone from its roots into the soil that is toxic to many other plants and kills them, thereby reducing competition for resources.

THESE ARE PLANTS THAT CAN SURVIVE LIVING AROUND A BLACK WALNUT TREE.
