Bog garden: from muddy to magnificent Barbara Weirich and her husband created a beautiful bog garden in a poorly drained area of their property near Lake Michigan. In the November/December 2010 issue of Fine Gardening (#136), Barbara mentions her favorite plants for moist conditions and talks about how she and her husband met the design challenges of gardening on a wet site. To identify many of the plants in these photos from her article "From Muddy to Magnificent," move your mouse over the circles.

When faced with a spot that seems too wet to deal with, turn it into a beautiful bog garden instead of calling in the bulldozers.
