Wetland Plants Perfect For Our Zone
A variety of wetland plants are perfect for your zone. From tall and exotic bamboo to flowers with showy dazzling blossoms, there are many great choices.

These beautiful flowers are perennials or annuals that will reseed to return year after year. Wildlife such as butterflies and hummingbirds will be attracted to the colorful blooms. Milkweed with its pretty pink blossoms attract monarch butterflies, and wild ducks will feed on duck potato. Arrow arum is an easy-to-grow, tropical-looking plant. White flowers appear in late spring and later form seed pods with shiny green seeds that are most attractive. Including these plants in your wetland garden creates a serene and scenic oasis for a variety of wildlife.
