Need some suggestions #2

SandL(6a KS)September 14, 2004

I just realized I couldn't post two pictures in my last post, so here is picture number 2. Same area of my back yard, just a different angle.

By the way, the soil in the barrell is constantly wet due to bad drainage (something I am hoping to correct by drilling holes in the barrell). I would like any suggestions on what to plant in there that loves really moist soil anyway.

MINT!! Not only thrives in boggy containers, but will fill that whole nook with it's aroma.

Alas, I just got rid of the mint that was living in this area. Actually, I'm glad I did because it started to invade all the nearby beds.
I settled on Christmas ferns and hostas in the area surrounding the barrell. I'm going to plant hardy begonias in the barrell once April rolls around.
