Plants for Wet Areas - Knowledgebase Question

What potted plants can I put around a fountain? This is a mostly shady and moist area. The two types of ferns I tried last year did not like the water falling on them ten hours a day.

Very few plants will appreciate such a setting. Your best bet is to go with plants for a bog garden. Some options include Cannas (choose dwarf types to avoid blocking your view of the fountain) although they won't want too much shade, Louisiana iris, and Virginia sweetspire.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
