Special plants for rain gardens

ALASKA, Fairbanks SWCD — An observant reader of my column, who is also a gardener, asked me to provide a list of the plants that the Youth for Habitat team planted in Raven Landing’s new rain garden. Teens enrolled in this annual program, with Fairbanks Soil and Water Conservation District, researched plants that can survive both drought and flood conditions for this project.

They include: native geranium, Trollius, Filipendula, shrub rose, Iris, dogwood, mock orange, silverberry, columbine and bluebells.
