Plant advice

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 22:39

I find Symphytum officinale, comphrey does that job very well but maybe that's closer to a weed than you want to go. Iris pseudocorus is good as well. and Filipendula ulmaria, meadow sweet. One of the willowherbs, Epilobium hirsutum has a lovely pink flower and spreads nicely.

The comphrey and the willowherb are seeders as well which can be a disadvantage in the rest of the garden. Especially the willowherb that has windblown seeds

It you want something shrubby;  willow, cut back regularly if you don't want anything tall, and the coloured stemmed dogwoods will cope with inundation.

I'd kill/remove the nettles for a start though 

Is this all Campanula Portenschlagiana?

Those two names are similarly unpronounceable and they are often wrongly labelled.

If you check on the RHS website or in the big RHS book you'll see the difference,

I think it would have another go at flowering. But you will have a carpet of flowers for little effort

I think that one could be C. poscharskyana. Trailing bell flower. 

It looks like it and your description of its growth sounds like it
