Coastal and Windswept Locations – Coastal Plants

Coastal and Windswept Locations – Coastal Plants
Coastal plants will thrive in windy and exposed positions often where they are subjected to salt sprays as well as gales. This list of coastal plants is selected for its hardiness in tough conditions. However some of these coastal plants may need a windbreak or some sort of shelter to get started at least in the initial years and only a very few of them can be expected to grow unprotected on the very edge of a cliff.
This is our recommended selection for coastal areas, full plant list can be found by using the a-z on the right hand menu or using the keyword search top right, if you need something specific.
