Plants That Tolerate Wet Conditions

Wet tolerant plants are plants that once established can survive with excess water than other plants. This is to say that the area in which they are to be planted is low lying and poor draining, or periodically floods, they should do well once the establishment period has passed. (None of these plants can survive submerged for long periods of time.)
