@ossobuco,
Why don't you get a grip, osso? A2K bills itself as "ask the experts" -- free expertise. As responding to any question is completely voluntary you are not required to read or respond to any question I ask. I don't need your permission to ask a question here. If Robert has a problem with my participation on A2K I'm sure he would tell me. Until he does tell me, I'll feel free to ask questions that I would like an answer to or an opinion on.

boomer just in case it wasnt clear in my original post. Leptospermum (tea tree) and Mellaluca (bottle brush) have species that are suitable for swamps and others suited to dry hillsides. There are several commercial cultivars available and a variety of heights from dwarf to small tree.

I know you are in a high rainfall zone but not familiar with your zone which is why I said check at your nursery and didnt make specific suggestions. If there is something suitable in those two species they'll know.

@dadpad,
Thanks, dadpad, I'm still working my way through the suggestions posted. Things are a little crazy here right now so it might take me a while.

I do appreciate everyone's input.

I doubt that Kansas is in Sunset Western Garden Zone 6.

This is not the same thing as regular hardiness zones.

I don't mean to be as snotty as I sound, but I've followed Sunset zones since 1980.

There are different criteria.

I know I sound like a prick, but... Sunset Western Gardens gets more into microclimates, and they mostly or somewhat matter. I don't consider them perfect, but they're closer than the ordinary hardiness zones. I've seen them dead wrong several times, on different sides of survival lines, especially re humboldt county. When Boom mentions Sunset 6, it is about that categorization.

@Rockhead,
Are you sure that isn't USDA zone instead of Sunset zone?

I'm in (I think) USDA zone 8.

At risk of sticking myself into a sticky situation.... Boomer, I think Osso is suggesting local sources because plants recommended by people outside of your area may be suggesting plants which are bad for your area.
