Hi, just wondering if you have a list of native plants for rain gardens.

Hi Wes, I haven't listed those separately, I will add that reference to my list though, good idea. The pond plants that I have described as 'edge' (as opposed to growing right in the water), will work. That would include Northern Blue Flag Iris, Muskingum Sedge, Sweet Flag and Marsh Marigold. Other rain garden candidates from my perennials list would include Swamp Milkweed, Joe Pye Weed, Blue Vervain, White and Pink Turtlehead, Pennsylvania Smartweed, Blue Eyed Grass and Ohio Spiderwort. Among the shrubs, Swamp Rose, Meadowsweet and Steeplebush.
