Shrubs and Shrub Alternatives That are

Tolerant of Water Logged Soils

Shrub choices can be severely limited with consistently water logged soils. Fortunately in most of
those areas, other options can be substituted to serve the same purpose.

In this list I have tried to include some other non traditional plant choices that will thrive in locations
where you may be trying to decide on a shrub to install. Try to keep an open mind and remember that
planting something that will thrive without any fuss from you in a moist or wet soil location will look
far better than attempting to make something work that really is not meant for that area. In the end a better
suited plant selection will give you a much better looking landscape.
