Best Bets: Native Plants for Wet Conditions

Homeowners often wonder which plants will be best suited to the soMGNV - Sustainable Landscaping Logoil conditions in their landscapes. In this class, Extension Master Gardener Elaine Mills will describe the factors that lead to wet conditions in a garden and the adaptations plants have made to do well in moist sites, tolerate intermittent flooding, or grow in standing water. She will introduce native trees, shrubs, perennials, ferns, grasses, and rushes that have been found to thrive in these conditions, explain the benefits they provide to wildlife, and offer tips for growing and maintaining them.
