I finally added a picture of the flower bed I have still not finished. Sage in the middle and red and orange daylilies. Couldn't find many of the plants suggested. Any more ideas to finish? emoticon

Thanks, I do think I am starting to get an idea in my head. It takes me along time to do these things, I like it to look right and I don't want to redo. As soon as it's done I will post a picture.

Sounds like a great list....

Do keep us updated and post a photo when you get it planted. I can't wait to see it.

Thanks Heidi, I'll have to look those plants up, most of them I've never heard of. I thought I knew every plant.. Anyway, thank you for your ideas. Jackie

What about some plants or herbs that don't mind wet feet?

Cardinal Flowers
Turtlehead
Blue Flag Iris
Blue Lobelia
Royal Catchfly
Queen-of-the-prairie
Marsh milkweed


Grasses that are decorative and enjoy being wet
Switch grass
Indian grass
Soft rush

An herb that doesn't mind damp feet - Marjoram

Shrub that doesn't mind dampness- Buttonbush

I'm sure there are others-maybe even wetlands or marsh plants that are native to your region but need a safe place to grow.


Blessings,
Heidi

and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. "

Hi everyone, I had a rose bed in the middle of my yard . I had to remove the roses because the lawn sprinklers hit the roses and of course they did not do well. Now I have a big empty space. Anyone have any ideas about what I can plant there that won't be bothered by the wqter. We don't want to redo the water system. I've been thinking about this along time and I am out of ideas.
