Coastal plants can find a place in just about any garden. They are amongst the toughest of all plants, built to withstand full sun, little rain and salty spray. This makes them the best plants for any garden close to the coast but also further away, given their ability to cope with pretty much anything you can throw at them.
Coastal plants are typically full of colour. Many have hairy or waxy coatings on the leaves and white under-surfaces that reflect heat and light. This leads to a variety of leaf shapes and colours that add diversity to the garden. Many coastal plants also have large, colourful flowers with yellow, white and pink especially prevalent. The range of ground covers here is higher than any other habitats as they have evolved to take on an important role in the stabilisation of dunes.
Many coastal trees make great windbreak species, being used to stiff coastal winds, and are able to withstand storms. They are also typically fast growing, a necessity in moving sand dunes. Coastal areas have abundant birdlife, especially nectar feeders, and an assortment of these species will help you attract these birds to your garden.
