plant that doesn't mind getting wet?

novita(SWB.C. z8)May 19, 2007

Does anyone know of a plant that doesn't mind getting its leaves wet on a daily basis? It's a space around a fountain, and most plants do not like being sprinkled, even pond plants. The only one I have found is fibrous begonias, but I would like something different this year. Any ideas?

I don't know of too many plants that will put up with being splashed... I would look for a thin leaved plant as the water droplets aren't going to lay on the leaves the same as it does when it's flat and big leaves. When there are water droplets on the leaf the sun hits that water and scorches the leaves.. one reason water lilies don't like to be splashed.

Hope this helps.. somewhat.
