Looking for plant ideas
We're in the process of digging out the permanent horseshoe pits the former owner of our property put in. This is going to leave me with a pair of gaping holes to fill in. And I've decided that I want to put some sort of bush into at least one of the holes.
I'd really like a flowering native bush. One that the bees and/or butterflies, and/or hummingbirds (we only get Ruby Throats) will go for.
It needs to either be slow growing, or stay under 10ft.
It needs to be good down to zone 5, and with the winter temps from last winter fresh on my brain I'd really like something that's good down to zone 4.
It must be tolerant of wet soil. I can put in a slight raised bed there for it, but I don't want a huge one, and that area is very wet, like, water less than 10inches down wet.
Preferably *not* one with violent spreading by suckers tendencies. We have a Trumpet Vine elsewhere on the property and keeping the suckers mowed down is a constant chore.
I do not want a Willow relative.
