wet area perrenials, shrubs any thing
Posted by Kim from Maryland/7 on 2008-04-04 10:40:00

I have an area that becomes a puddle about 5' x 2' for about a day or two after it rains. It's quite ugly, right in front of my house along the road. (created by repaving and raising the road about 5 ". To fill it would risk having the water go toward the house which is only about 15' from the puddle/street. I was wondering if there's any thirsty plants that would do well there? It is part sun/shade southern exposure. Also I would prefer a native plant but would welcome any ideas.
Thanks for any advice.
