I'd look to native plants that like wet spaces, Christina, and include things like great blue lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) or its red cousin (Lobelia cardinalis), marsh marigold (Caltha palustris), blue flag iris (Iris versicolor), turtlehead (Chelone glabra) and, since your pond is small, perhaps one of the shorter cultivars of Joe Pye weed, like Eupatorium dubium "Little Joe."
Christina...Doug is one of our resident Plant gurus...and has some great suggestions for you.
BTW Welcome aboard...you must be a skier with a profile pic like that. (our season here in Colorado this year was pretty poor, we did however get a couple of inches last night. ( at least at my house)
