Looking for tree and shrub suggestions for a wet area in zone 3.

Looking for tree and shrub suggestions for a wet area in zone 3.

Hopefully, this area just has wet soil from time to time rather than standing water.

Dogwood is a shrub that tolerate wet areas from time to time. If you have a warmer spot in your garden for a zone 4 shrub, try buttonbush. Birch do well in places with drainage problems and Parkland Pillar is a great one! It matures 40’ x 6-7’. A trio of birch is a really nice addition to the garden.

Thanks for writing!
