Plants for a very wet area
#6
  Re: (0...)
Our vegie garden has a spot where 3 other backyards converge and it is constantly soaking wet from the various sprinkler systems. Is there a plant(s) that would do well in such a location? It doesn't need to be a vegie. We use garden boxes because of limited space. Thank you.

If the site is partly to mostly sunny, then try milkweed, New England asters, wild indigo, marsh marigold, shooting star, joe pye weed, prairie smoke, hibiscus, impatiens, blue flag (iris), blazing star/liatris, lobelia, monkey flower, monarda, phlox, Jacob's ladder, black-eyed susan/rudbeckia, compass plant, Solomon's plume, goldenrod, spiderwort, ironweed, Culver's root, some ferns, and a large number of trees and shrubs. Go to your local nursery to check which of these might be best suited for your cold and heat hardiness zones.
The great thing about gardening is that you always get a chance to start over!

Thanks for this - had no idea there were so many plants that could manage a soaking spot! It's mostly sunny so will check with our local nursery as you suggest.

And the common Ditch Lily would work nicely too. They love wet soil. And they're gorgeous!
Happy Gardening!
