Creating a Bog Garden
Mississippi (MS) Cooperative Extension Service
Mississippi State,MS 39762
Bog gardens can be a fascinating addition for children and adults in the home landscape. Carnivorous pitcher plants (Sarracenia), butterworts (Pinquicula), sundews (Drosera), and other colorful and interesting wildflowers can be easily grown in cultured conditions. Many of these wetland plants are fairly small in size and suitable for patio containers or wet garden areas.
