Re: shrubs for damp clay


Has anyone mentioned nandina's yet? There are so many varieties and so many colors.... and they seem to grow anywhere.

I like Ilex glabra (Inkberry Holly), Itea virginica (Virginia sweetspire), and Clethra alnifolia (summersweet). All have been growing fine in my clay, and like moisture. The latter two are deciduous.

Thanks Andrea, I was thinking of the dwarf Yaupon hollies but didn't
know how much moisture they could stand. That laurel sounds nice too!

Pam, I had that problem here and have found that Dwarf Yaupon Holly can
take it, as can almost any holly, but my preferred shrub for foundation
planting is Otto Luyken Laurel (Prunus Laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken') It
stays small, evergreen, very dark leaves, and blooms twice a year with
white spikes in spring and fall. Used to be hard to find but now Lowes and
Home Depot carry it here.

I know there are plants that like wet feet (bog plants) - but are there
shrubs that can take damp clay? Asking for a friend at work whose house
stands in the lowest area of the property and the clay around the
foundation stays damp most of the time. Anything he plants will have to
max out at 4-5 feet. TIA y'all!
