tater, around here Centipede and St. Augustine do well in the shade and under most trees. Bahia will grow up through asphalt! But, you don't want it.

Trees and grass are not good friends. Man tries to get them together. Trees especially don't want grass around them.
Read anything by Dr. Alex Shigo, probably the world's foremost authority on trees and a prolific author.
