Plants/Shrubs that love water?

I have one part of my yard by the corner of that house that seems to form puddles and holds water after it rains a lot. I was thinking of putting in some plants or shrubs that love water and suck up a lots of it. Any suggestions?

not too sure about shrubs, but around here we plant bald cypress trees. they are a deciduous water loving tree.

If it's shady enough, Hostas might work.

Or you could just build up the grade there and plant what you like.

If it is all that wet, you might try some bog plants.

Hope this helps.
