Some shrubs suitable for wet areas include Elaegnus pungens (Silverthorn) grows 8-12' with fragrant flowers; Euonymus grows 10-12'. Fatsia japonica (Japanese Fatsia) grows 5-7' with large, unusual leaves; Kalmia latifolia (Mountain Laurel), 4-6' White to rose flowers, native shrub; Leucothoe fontanesiana (Drooping Leucothoe) 2-6' White, fragrant flowers, lustrous green foliage; Ligustrum grows 6-12' Most are durable, fast-growing. Hope these suggestions help.
