Although gravel is an option, there are a few plants that will grow well in shady, wet areas: Turttlehead - Chelone not only loves wet areas, but also blooms in shade. Chameleon Plant - Houttuynia is a low growing vine type of plant that has multicolored leaves. Ferns - Just about any fern will do well in a wet area. I love Japanese Painted ferns for places where you'll be seeing them up close. They have beautifully silvery leaves and red stems and veins. Best wishes with your garden!
