I live in a very wet area and have discovered the hard way that there are plants which just don't do. But happily there are plants which love it and do really well.
Ones I have had success with: hardy geraniums, astilbes, ferns of all shapes and sizes, sedums big and small, euphorbias, iris. My favourites are the astilbes, they are no bother, have lovely leaves and flowers, and the flower spikes are an interesting shape even when they have gone over. Also the slugs will not eat them!
