What type of shrub would I plant in an area that gets a lot of run off from everyone's yard. It's always damp, if not wet. Need something pretty that grows fast and tolerate.

Likes full sun.

Dusty Zenobia, Zenobia pulverulenta, is another native often found along stream banks. Plants tend to colonize. Gray-green foliage often persists into winter. White flowers in late spring. Gold fall color. 3 feet high and wide.

Using a variety of these shrubs would give you a handsome naturalized planting. Some of these may be difficult to find locally. Consider doing a web search for nurseries that have them. Good luck!
