Shrubs for Damp Soil

Special note about coastal plants and plants for wet/damp areas in gardens:

Only regionally native plants should be used along beaches, coastal and savannah restoration areas. For gardens with wet/damp areas, non-native plants that are not invasive are suitable. However, if the wet/damp area in question is along a stream, river, creek or lake then only regionally native plants should be used.
