Approx 9 waterlog tolerant plants to start a wet mud bog area of approx 1m squared. For a larger area please order multiples of this 1m square scheme and larger growing waterlog tolerant plant varieties will be included. For a Moist planting area see the Moist Plant Collection.

All plant choices depend on seasonal availability. The British Native waterlog tolerant plants will be chosen from: Caltha palustris, Carex riparia, Eriophorum angustifolium, Eriophorum latifolium, Iris pseudacorus, Lythrum salicaria, Potentilla palustris, Rorippa nasturtium-aquaticum, Ranunculus flammula, Veronica beccabunga and others.  

All plant choices depend on seasonal availability. Any waterlog tolerant plants will be chosen from: Anemopsis californica, Caltha palustris var alba, Eriophorum russeolum, Hesperantha coccinea, Iris versicolor, Juncus ensifolius, Mentha cervina and others including British Native plants. This scheme can be more ornamental and colourful.

The plants will come wrapped individually and there will be a selection of heights and flowering periods involved. Some will be ideal for the front of a border and others for the back so that a varying habitat can be created. The smallest pots will contain the smallest growing plants. Young newts, frogs, toads as well as airbourne dragonflies, bees, hoverflies and butterflies will all find an area of the waterlogged planted area attractive.       

Refer to individual plants for maintenance details in this collection of waterlog tolerant bog plants. All plants are selected to provide interest in each area of the wet muddy bog garden throughout the seasons.
