Flooded in Spring, Mowed in Summer
There is a field that is flooded in the Spring, then dries out and is mowed in the summer. I figure since it can't be used until it dries out, I might as well have something that looks pretty or provides food for pollinators in the Spring. Can anyone think of any New England native plants that can survive both being flooded and being mowed? I'm thinking Spring flowers that would go to seed before the area dries out and is mowed, ferns, or some kind of ornamental grass/rush/reed thing that can survive mowing.
