Wet Soil loving Bush/Plant

adalinaJanuary 29, 2006

Hi, I hoping someone could recomend a bush/tree/plant that survives in very wet soil. I have a area of my back yard that is always very wet due to an under ground spring. But I want to plant a row of trees/hedges/bushes back there instead of putting up a privacy fence. Any recommendations a deeply appreciated.

Thanks

Possibly Clethra alnifolia would work for you. Or maybe Cornus stolonifera. Both of these spread by suckers. And the second one can grow rather large. C. alba might be a better choice.

Pussy Willow, or most any willow for that matter. Highbush Blueberry, Swamp Maple, Tupelo, Button Bush, and those that bboy mentioned are all good for your area.

I believe Cornus alba and C. stolonifera are the exact same plant.
At least that's what my grower tells me. Find a cultivar that suits you and go that route, if that's what you want.
