What plants to grow under trees?

The flowers at the foot of the trees give a crazy charm to the landscape. However, it is not easy for them to obtain all the necessary resources for their survival when the tree, which is more imposing, is already using the nutrients from the soil. Rain is also harder to access since the tree leaves filter it. However, some plants do this very well and beautify the base of the tree. Here is a list of flowers you can grow under trees.
