OK so I picked up a copy of "Garden ideas and outdoor living". In there, theres a section about using plants and flowers in a poor draining area of the yard. Well, being as my whole yard is poor draining, I was thinking maybe I could plant a huge water garden. Heres the plants they suggest using in standing water... -Bristly Sage -Canada anemone -Ohio spiderwort -Wild sweet William -Switchgrass -Wild blue indigo -Great spike rush -Weeping willow -Cardinal flower -Path rush - American slouthgrass -New England aster -Prairie blazing star -Marsh St Johns wort -Prairie smoke -Corkscrew rush -Yellow flag -callalilies -Marsh fern -Obedient plant -Red osier dogwood -Northern sea oats -Bengal tiger canna -Scarlet rose mallow Anyone had any experience with any of these? And in the article it states these plants can grow in the clay that we have here. In fact, it states that clay is the perfect medium for these plants. Anyone? Just wanted to know before I go spend all that money on new plants to make me yard pretty.
