Best native ground cover to grow under pines? Possibly bee and butterfly attractive??

Here are some possibilities: Wild ginger (Asarum canadense), Wild geranium (Geranium maculatum), Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum), Jacob's ladder (Polemonium repens), Lady fern (Athyrium felix-femina), Royal fern (Osmunda regalis), and Pennsylvania Sedge (Carex pennsylvanica). Adding bee/butterfly part is a bit more difficult.
