  • Some plants like it wet

    There are some plants that demand good drainage:  taxus, coreopsis, gaillardia and penstemon, to name a few. I have lost them all because they were poorly sited in the garden but now that I know where water is slow to drain, I know where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.  
    There is an upside to poor drainage for some plants, just be sure that water is available when Mother Nature doesn’t deliver. That, clearly, has not been a problem this year. I definitely know where my wet spots are.
