Shrub for Low-lying wet area
I would like to plant a shrub in an area of my yard which is low-lying and retains water in times of heavy rainfall- which in this year's case is most of the season! I am having a hard time making a decision and wonder if forum members might give me some guidance. Shrubs I am considering are: Limelight Hydrangea, Dogwood (Love the look of pagoda dogwood but it may be too big and not hardy enough; Silver Leaf Dogwood, Red Osier Dogwood, Tiger Eyes Sumac (again not sure about hardiness), Amur Maple. Can these plants tolerate standing water for a period of time not usually more than a few days unless the monsoons continue to come? Any other suggestions for shrubs? Your comments will be appreciated.
