Plants for a Rain Garden?
I'm steadily developing permaculture practices in my yard, in a older subdivision (1940's). I have completely converted my back yard to "practicality" (no grass left), and am gradually working more on my front yard, not wanting to freak the neighbors out too quickly, but with long term plans for having little or no grass there either. I have dug a rain garden of about 200 square feet and planted a cherry and a dwarf apple in it so far, and a, looking for suggestions for more permaculture or guild plants. Most of the knowledge or rain garden planting around here dictates using native plants, but I have a goal of using only edible plants, (either for me or the rabbist or chickens) in the rain garden. Does anyone have suggestions for perennials, that would form a loose guild, that are edible? Zone 6, mostly sunny.
