Water tolerant groundcovers
Is there a shady groundcover that will tolerate being planted in standing water? Our neighbor built her house about 10 feet higher than ours, then paved much of her yard so that we now receive most of her run-off along out driveway. We also have a much beloved tall privet hedge between us, under which I will plant the groundcover. When it rains, water stands in place sometimes for a week. As summer progresses, the area is dryer, but it never truly dries out.
