Every gardener or summer resident seeks to somehow change in the next season, transform the usual landscapes of his garden plot. For example, a barrel for draining rainwater. She stands in a prominent place near the house, collects and sprinkles water abundantly when the rains charge …
This place is always damp and unkempt. But it could be different! There are many perennial plants that will willingly live and bloom in a "wet flower bed" around such a barrel. A small area in front of it can be covered with gravel or fine gravel, so that it is convenient to come up for water and not get your feet wet. And on the sides or around the barrel and place moisture-loving flowers.

It blooms in June - July, but all summer it has very decorative leaves and the bush itself, which will cover even the unsightly walls of the old barrel.

Low flowering rugs are created by the creeping tenacious (Ayuga), actively rooting in the nodes of its creeping shoots, blooming with purple "candles" in May - June, and the monotonous loosestrife - a creeping perennial with small opposite leaves and single yellow flowers. …
Blooms from May to July. Tenacious and loosestrife can also be used to strengthen the walls and slopes of drainage ditches. They perfectly cover the entire surface of the earth, leaving no room for weeds, and ditches become an effective element of landscape design. Tenacious and loosestrife grow in the forest and in meadows, although there are also especially decorative garden forms. …
All these hygrophilous species easily reproduce by dividing the bushes almost throughout the season. In spring and mid-summer they are fed with full fertilizer. After flowering, the inflorescences and flowers are cut, the bushes take on a well-groomed appearance and retain their decorative effect until the end of the season due to the variety of leaf shapes and colors.
