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.
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.
You can find plenty of flood tolerant trees and plants situable for wet areas in our online store.
