The Bog Garden
a collection of moisture-loving plants
If you have a perpetually damp place in your yard that you've always considered a problem area, don't despair. Whether it's an area that doesn't drain well, floods periodically, or borders a pond or stream, let that unique situation become an intriguing, one-of-a-kind garden spot (as well as a wonderful habitat for wildlife) by selecting plants that thrive in moist places. This plan will work best in a partly shaded area (at the edge of a woods, for example) but will also be fine in a sunnier place as long as the soil never dries out. Choose a site that remains moist but not soggy or flooded for extended periods. Before planting your new garden, decide where you should place a footpath of substantial flat stones that will facilitate gardening chores and leisurely strolls. Several of the varieties indicated here-the Lysimachia, Monarda, and Tradescantia in particular-will multiply rapidly and may need some reining in after a few seasons. In addition to the perennials and ornamental Grasses indicated in the plan, add a variety of Ferns and Hostas to your damp garden.
Plant in groups of three except where indicated.
