Skullcap is a plant that thrives in damp places, be it salt marsh, river bank or pond edges. It has a preference for calcareous or neutral soils at low levels so it tends to occur near the coast, although low lying wet areas anywhere can prove suitable. Skullcap is a short to medium plant with blue tubular flowers. Although the books describe it as common throughout England it is not a flower I encounter very often; it flowers from June to September so there is plenty of time to find it.

Dryopteris wallichiana WALLICH'S WOOD FERN...3 to 4 feet.  Zone 6-9...maybe I could get away with this.  Would have to research the water requirements :)

Yellow Calla Lily. Caring for a calla lily is relatively easy since it grows in almost any soil. The soil needs to be kept damp at all times, but not too damp, because the bulb could rot. Part sun is best for callas as they like sun, but need their soil area to be on the cooler side. Dig up the bulbs in fall so they do not freeze over winter.
