Walnuts are well known for the allelopathy trait. 
Nothing grows under them due to the release of juglone which inhibits germination of seeds

 Is phytotoxicity the correct term for this phenomenon? I would have used allelopathy.

  A search of Google scholar turned up a number of references.  The attached paper might be informative at least as a starting point, but bear in mind their interest was using extracts or ground up biomass as a pre-emergent herbicide to suppress germination of weeds.

 An inquiry has come via the PBS website asking whether Amaryllis 
belladonna has some property that prevents other plants from growing 
near it. Does anyone know about this? Or are his Amaryllis so congested 
that the shallow-growing bulbs are just blocking anything else from growing?
