A floodplain or streamside (riparian habitats) that is subject to flooding should be planted with species that can handle some very wet conditions but are not continually flooded.  This is a rich environment for insects, birds,and animals.  The soils are usually somewhat clay , have high amounts of organic matter and saturated sand.  This mix suits these conditions.  There are often perennial weeds and other undesirable vegetation that must be removed BEFORE seeding.  They will present problems if not removed. Examples of undesirables that will need to be removed by approved herbicides, undesirables include multiflora rose, purple loosestrife, and reed canarygrass.
