Wet yard - suggestions?

We have very wet conditions in our front yard in Georgia. The only thing that is growing along our foundation is holly. We need other plants (perennials) and shrubs. Suggestions for what we can put in - sunny most of the day but the soil is always wet.

Clethra is a good plant for moist conditions. Pretty flowers and nice fall foliage. Also Aronia, buttonbush (Cephalanthus), dogwood, inkberry holly (Ilex glabra) and bayberry (Myrica pensylvanica).

Try our new Plant Encyclopedia and see what others you uncover.
