We replaced our sump pump recently and needed to re-route the discharge lines. I now have a brown plastic hose coming out thru my flowerbed, which I don't mind. The issue now is that the
ground is constantly soggy. DH carved a small trench to give the water a place to go, but I am thinking in the spring I may try to put in a small rain garden or some kind of water feature. Does anyone have ideas? I would really appreciate some input.

If you live anywhere from the mid-Atlantic states south and west to Texas, oxblood lilies, Rhodophiala bifida, are an excellent way to add vivid pops of color to the garden at a time when
it is often looking tired and bedraggled. Related to the amaryllis, these natives of Argentina and Uruguay were introduced to gardens here when German immigrants in South America sent bulbs to compatriots who had immigrated to Texas. They are happiest in dappled shade, but handle heat and cold, drought and rain with aplomb.
