Plant Ideas?

vegangurl20January 25, 2005

Hi There! I have a new flower bed in a place that is very sunny, but stays very wet most of the time. And I am new to bog gardening, so I just wondered if you guys could give me any ideas on plants that require consistantly moist soil? Thanks so much!

These are some of the things I grow in my Zone 8 bog garden:
Japanese, Louisiani, Siberian, Flag and Walking iris
Colocasia illustris (imperial taro)
Black Magic elephant ear
Cut leaf philodendrum
Gingers: hidden, butterfly, kahili, pine cone, shell
Umbrella plant
Pitcher plant
Rain lilies
Variegated sweet flag

I'm sure there's much more you can grow, I've just ran out of room!

I see we have very similar user names:-) I saw you post and though "Hey, I don't remember posting that. It must have been along time ago!" then I realized it wasn't me:-)
