Moisture Loving Perennials

Wet soil? Moisture-loving plants won't mind a bit!

Do you have a low-lying area that collects water after a rain storm or is constantly wet? These moisture-loving perennials will tolerate high humidity and will thrive in wet or damp conditions that can drown other plants. Because they like their "feet" (roots) wet, they won't complain when you experience heavy rains or when sited in slow-draining soils, and are also less prone to developing diseases associated with with excess moisture, such as mildew.

    Gardeners who plant ‘Brilliance’ Autumn Fern will find that the sturdy fronds stand up to all but the harshest ice storm, providing green when we need it most. Winner of the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award-winner, this evergreen fern unfurls bronze-colored fronds in spring and sports particularly bright orange-red ripe spores on the undersides of the leaves in autumn. In early spring, cut away the old foliage to reveal new fronds emerging in extraordinary shades of coppery pink. Though it can stand on its own with grace, it provides a fantastic backdrop to shade plants such as Variegated Solomon’s Seal and Blue Brunnera. Autumn Fern is easy to grow in rich, moist, cool soil in full shade to part shade locations. It can grow in full sun with plenty of moisture. It is tolerant of dry shade, and drought tolerant once established. It benefits from regular moisture in its first season, and from an annual dressing of compost or mulch.
