Shrubs for an area prone to flooding?
We have a brook running across the bottom of our garden -- not as idyllic as it sounds, as it floods at least twice a year! Does anyone know of a reliable medium-size shrub that will grow with its feet in constantly damp soil and survive flooding (to a depth of about 4 feet)? I'd also like it to be wildlife friendly, if possible. For the spot I have in mind, I need something that won't go above 5-6 feet high. Any suggestions, please? Thanks.
