  • WICHE: 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 now where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.
