|I HAVE A GOOD SIZE WATERY PATCH IN MY YARD. WHAT KIND OF PLANTS CAN I PUT THERE TO MAKE IT MORE APEELING. TRIED MULCHING BUT THAT'S NOT WORKING. IT SEEMS TO BE SPREADING.|
|Most plants won't tolerate soggy soils, but there are a few that will. Here are some of the best:
Ajuga (Bugleweed), Amelanchier (Serviceberry), Astilbe (Astilbe), Iris, Cornus stolonifera (Dogwood shrub), Forsythia (Forsythia), Hemerocallis (Daylilies), Hosta , Itea, Miscanthus (Maiden Grass).
You might want to address the soggy soil problem by installing a curtain drain to redirect the excess water. Properly installed curtain drains usually help mimimize soggy spots in the landscape. Best wishes with your garden!
