Japanese spurge in boggy full sun conditions?

I've got this spot that stays wet so today I figured I'd go pull up some cattails and plant them there; well I found a japanese spurge growing from this abandoned house right down to the ditch so I pulled a bag of that up and planted it in that wet, full sun spot (hoping to dry it up a bit there.) Do you think it's going to be able to handle the full Florida sun, even though it will have a constant water source, or should I abandon this idea and replant it somewhere else?

Normally it does well in a shady location, but since it didn't cost you anything except time what do you have to lose, but do not be disappointed. You may want to try red osier dogwood, but it still might get too much sun.
