Q.Growing Flowering Plants In Wet Summer Soil And Dry Winter Soil.

Zone Tampa, Florida 33647 | Anonymous added on January 19, 2021 | Answered

I live in central Florida. My soil is clay and sand. We have a lot of rain in the summer and the ground gets sopping wet. In the winter, it doesn’t rain very often and the ground gets hard and dry.

What kind of flowering bushes or even flowers can I grow year-round in such an environment?

Thanks for your answer.

We also have many articles for plants in zone 9. You can pick out some of those that interest you and check to see if they tolerate moist soil. Most have links to individual plants for more detail. For example:
