Wet Area Native Champs


A wet area is a place where water can sometime collect. All the native plants in this collection will grow even if they are in standing water for a time. They like to be wet. This collection contains three plants of the following: lobelia cardinalis (cardinal flower below), asclepias incarnata (swamp milkweed), mimulus ringens (monkey flower), and lobelia syphilitica (Great Blue lobelia). It also includes one plant of iris virginica (Wild Flag Iris).

Lobelia and Flag iris bloom in the spring and the others are summer bloomers. Hummingbirds and butterflies will flock to the flowers of these plants. They all like plenty of sun. For more details on growing them see our
Native Plants List.
