Plant a beautiful, colorful rain garden in a wide, shallow depression to collect rainwater. The roots of these plants will help the water soak into the soil instead of running off. Rain garden plants tolerate periods when they stand in water, alternating with periods of drought.
This garden mix includes plants such as Porcupine Sedge, Southern Blue Flag Iris, Dense Blazingstar, Great Blue Lobelia, Blue Vervain, New England Aster, and Mountain Mint.
