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.
