A List of Plants That Love Rain

Nothing beats the sight of a garden, especially when it is raining! The rain garden landscape is a bit different from your regular garden type. These garden types suit marshes and wet soil better. Perfect for the tropical landscape, your rain garden will blossom anywhere with a little care. Rain plants can be easily identified and planted. 

It's just the amount of rain each plant can take that's worrying. While most rain plants only prosper with excess rain, some can experience bacterial infection and fungal growth. When dealing with plants prone to infections, don't plant them directly in the soil. It's better to grow them in a pot.

While planting rain plants, make sure there don't drown in rainwater. Standing rainwater accumulates germs and bacteria over time. Make sure rainwater drains adequately once the plants have been watered. 

Before April showers hit your region, get those rain-loving saplings coming! Plant rain plants now to see them bloom in early summer. Rain plants need moist soil to grow. Even when it's not raining, make sure the soil is rich enough for the rain plants to blossom!
