Can I plant flowering bushes or shrubs in an area that stays wet half the time?

Can I plant flowering bushes or shrubs in an area that stays wet half the time?

Good question!

It depends on the shrub. Buttonbush is one that doesn’t mind wet feet. Dogwood shrubs tolerate moist soil too. And, I’ve read Winterberry does fine in areas that don’t drain as well.

Thanks for writing!
