We have an area in the yard that is wet in the spring or if we get an abnormally large amount of rain. It dries out the rest of the time. Should we consider this a wet area when planting? We’d like to put some type of flowering tree there.
If there is standing water for a day or longer. or so after a heavy rain, I’d consider it a wet area. Magnolias can handle a wet area though and there is even a yellow variety called “butterflies” in addition to the Saucer, Star and others.
