Answer: Hi there. It sounds like you need to "chat" with your neighbor about that sump pump line running to the low area. After that situation is rememdied, try the Ilex and Salix plants in that area. Yes, the Sambucus would like a drier location. The driedzones on the leaf margins of your dieffenbachia could be due to too much water. Try cutting back a bit, or repotting the plant if it hasn't been repotted in a few years.
