Best plans or shrubs to absorb rain water?

I'm at the bottom of the hill and when it rains hard, it floods my large garden. The area is mostly shady. What's the best plant or shrub to absorb the water to keep it from flooding and running down into the lawn?

Well I would suggest you go to our Plant Encyclopedia on this website and do an Advanced Search, plugging in your criteria to see what comes up. There are many shrubs and perennials that can tolerate moist conditions, but the shade part will be tricky.
