The woodruff is the one that smells like vanilla too isn't it weezie? And are the cattails a good bog plant
. I always see them in the dry arrangements with the pussywillows but I wasn't sure if they actually grow in the same conditions. If I had a bog I would definitely have some of the tropicanna cannas. The foliage is so great it's bloom is secondary in my opinion and its pretty cool all by itself.
If you have enough of a bog going could you fit a weeping willow
in that area? I think they are fantastic trees
but they are much bigger than a bush.
Hope you find a good solution to your problem. Let me know what you decide. I always love to know what people decide.
