If you live in a moist climate, you can’t plant any kind of flowers you want and figure they’ll thrive in an abundance of water. Some plants and flowers will do rather poorly in those conditions, developing rot or other conditions that lead to their demise. But with a little bit of research, you can find flowers that absolutely love your wet soil. Here are ten. (And while you’re at it, why not plan your vegetable garden. Even if you have a small space, you can grow a ton of your own food.)
1. Siberian Iris
This late-spring bloomer features skinny, glossy leaves and delicate blossoms that still carry a lot of presence for your garden. Siberian iris, unlike bearded iris, will actually grow in soil with poor drainage, and even in shallow standing water. Zones 3-9.
