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.
Proverbs 3: 5-8 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart 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. Jackie
