    I have a lady who has this small bed that is surrounded by 3 sides of her house. The area stays pretty wet and gets and ok amount of light. She wants something that is colorful. &quot;I dont want a lot of green plants&quot; as she put it. So im asking you guys what would be a good plant that is colorful and can survive wet and somewhat poor sunlight conditions?<br>Thanks for the help <br>Dingo

    One that comes to mind is Euonymus Emerald 'n' Gold,another that would work Viburnum 'Mariesii' or 'Roseum' all will thrive in wet soil and part sun will work.The viburnum will flower...Euonymus is a evergreen with golden-yellow margins,good luck<p>----------<br>John <br>
