Answer

The Philadelphia Water Department has an excellent page on their website on constructing a Rain Garden.

PWD rain garden page here

This page includes suggested plants, depending on how much sun you get.

Penn State has a list of suggested plants for rain gardens

Penn State list here

Am also sending you a useful chapter on waterwise gardening techniques from Christopher Thomas's The new American landscape : leading voices on the future of sustainable gardening. (See attached file)
