There are a number of plants that don't mind wet feet, especially in the winter when they're dormant. Try Phyllostachys (Black Bamboo), Iris, Sagittaria (Arrowhead), Schizostylis (Kaffir Lily), Japanese Ribbon Grass, Viburnum (Snowball), Scirpus (Zebra Rush), Primrose, Lysimachia (Yellow Loosestrife), Fritillaria (Snake's Head), or Hosta.
