Please post here any links to websites with lists of Juglone tolerant plants.

Also post here any plants you personally have found to be Juglone tolerant. Some plants will survive the presence of Juglone for 2 or 3 years, but then will eventually wither, so please, be sure that your experiences have withstood time.

Also feel free to discuss any of your experiences with these plants.

I would like to add that as new resources are posted here, one should consider personal experience too when choosing plants. Some of these lists show the same plants on both the tolerant and toxic lists. Confused

I'm copying this post over from another thread It was made by Ticker.

Hi, I'm Diann and I garden under black walnuts, too. I haven't found too many things I couldn't grow under them, tho. They are the perfect tree for growing hosta under because of their tap root, so you have less root competition. I grow, hosta, lily, peony, tree peony, clematis, lily, daylily, bearded iris, Siberian iris, pulmonaria, ligularia, brunaria, tulips, poppies, ferns, dead nettle, astilbe and other stuff that I've probably forgotten.

However, come nut falling time it can be a challenge to weed and not get boinked on the head by a nut. LOL

The one most common thing that I keep finding in articles relative to Juglone's affect on plants is that the addition of organic matter to the soil will help mitigate the harmful effects. The organic matter will feed the microorganisms that will actively work to ingest the Juglone and render it harmless.

Yesterday I read an article that said that often plants that are thought to be juglone susceptible can survive under Black Walnuts if they are planted there as seedlings. The thinking behind this was that as seedlings have very tiny roots, they will not come into contact with the root zone of the tree. The article went on to say that the amount of Juglone in the other parts of the tree were insignificant when compared to the amount found in the roots.

There are so many conflicting articles written about Juglone.

Today i read that onions, parsnips, sugar beets, Jerusalem artichoke and some species of beans will grow well under Black Walnuts.

This article "A Review of Suitable Companion Crops for Black Walnut" by Robert Scott & William C. Sullivan is very good reading.

Here's another good article on Black walnut trees as well as another list of tolerant & susceptible plants.

This one is from Virginia Tech through the Virginia Cooperative Extension.

It's entitled "Trees for problem landscapes -- The Walnut Tree: Allelopathic Effects and Tolerant Plants"

I'm encouraging all readers to add their own experience with juglone tolerant plants here. Just remermber, it can take 3 years for Juglone to kill a plant. So please limit adding the names of any plants that haven't been growing in your walnut garden for at least 3 years. Thanks!
