I've seen true lilies growing under black walnuts. I don't know how 
anything else would do, but, if you like hummingbirds, they love my 
Lycoris (what else do you expect me to talk about anyway??!!) If Lycoris 
can stand that nasty chemical, they thrive in deciduous shade, plus you 
can come up with all sorts of colors, plant heights and blooming 
seasons. We've all read Jim W.'s remarks to this effect many times. I 
know grasses can't handle the chemical from black walnut.
