Our property contains an area that is perhaps 2 acres of rich soil that is quite wet at all times--borderline marshy in the spring, and never quite fully drying. It's surrounded by higher rocky outcroppings that likely seep moisture and drain to a small creek / wetland with this area of land in between.
I'd like to plant some native fruit, berry, or nut plants in the area--for personal harvest as well as for wildlife, but am unsure what types of plants might do well.
We're located in New England, hardiness zone of 5a (bordering 4b) and the state's survey cites the soil type as "Farmington extremely rocky loam, 5 to 20 percent slopes - FaC".
The land is on a slight slope (the lower end of that 5 to 20 percent range), receives moderate sun, and has wet but rich soil. It was fairly thick with invasive honeysuckle and has some sumac.
What types of New England fruits, berries, or nuts might do well in this wet, somewhat marshy area?
