Dear Mr. Smarty Plants,
What plants do you recommend for a bioswale or rain garden in Austin, Texas?
Rain garden plants need to be able to tolerate growing in standing water, but also need to be able to thrive when the water dries up. The plants below should meet those criteria and will do well in sun or partial shade (2 to 6 hours sun per day).
