recommendations? wet, clay, full sun
Zone 5 - Western PA
We are trying to plant at our new house - we have an area which has clay, very wet (often 1" puddles for a few days after a rain), and gets full sun. We are hoping to find some good shrubs to line by the road and driveway, evergreen preferably so that in the winter there is still something nice to look at. We are also looking for a focal point, something not too large(perhaps 8-10 feet) but very interesting to look at (ie weeping).
Ideally the shrubs would flower, or have something interesting about them as well. We live out in the woods, so we are not looking for something too manicured, wild is better.
Please - any recommendations are appreciated! Thank you!
