Hubby's rain garden has been doing very well and filling in quite nicely. He is very careful to keep the cattails extra watered and his effort is certainly paying off. He has about 6 cattails forming. This plant is a varigated cattail so it is a pretty plant even without the brown cattails. The big plant in the middle is a swamp milkweed which is supposed to attract Monarch butterflies. The purple flowered plants are spiderwort. He has day lillies planted in the front of the garden. Hostas are not supposed to like the wetness but they are surviving.
