Flood tolerant plant Q&A

How to growing in wet areas?

Do you live on a lake or have a pond on your property that sometimes floods during the rainy season? If so, then you need to find some flood tolerant plants. There is a difference between plants that can withstand flooding and plants that prefer wet conditions. Many plants listed here will tolerate flooding conditions for a short time, but still prefer to be grown in normal soil. Many of the plants in the Colocasia family actually prefer moist soil and would be a great choice for that garden area near the pond.

Can I grow trees in areas that get wet?

Yes, there are some flood tolerant trees that might work for you. Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) is one that will tolerate flooding. It is quite tropical, so do not order it unless you are in a zone that will not get too cool. There are even a few flood tolerant fruit trees that you may be able to use. Black Sapote, Jaboticaba, and Macadamia nut are all trees that will tolerate some flooding and will provide you with your own food. The best advice for flooding is to avoid it! Bring in extra sand or soil to keep flood waters away or move to higher ground.

Where to buy flood tolerant plants?

You can find plenty of flood tolerant trees and plants situable for wet areas in our online store. If you are looking for high quality plants for sale near you and you are in the Southwest Florida, Ft. Myers area, please visit our Garden Center located at 13890 Orange River Blvd., Ft. Myers, FL 33905 and see our collection of rare tropicals trees. Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff will help you select the best plants for your landscape and needs.
