Damp Areas Beside Water – Bog Plants

Damp Areas Beside Water – Bog Plants
Bog plants can be trees, shrubs or herbaceous plants but what they all have in common is that they are best suited to damp, wet and usually shady situations or beside water. They should not however be confused with pond plants which are typically grown actually in the water itself. Herbaceous bog plants tend to be clump forming and the majority die down completely in the winter.
This is our favourite selection, full plant list can be found by using the a-z on the right hand menu or using the keyword search top right, if you need something specific.
