Plants for Coastal/Seashore Conditions

Garden Guides | At Your Home Garden Design Service | In House Bed Design | Garden Tune-Up Service
Compiled in part from the book: California Native Plants for the Garden, available for sale at the nursery.

Plants tolerant of exposed areas adjacent to the ocean where winds and salt spray are the norm. Many other natives, too many to list, can safely be planted in coastal areas in protected sites beyond the ocean spray. Below we have compiled some of the plants we consider most likely to thrive in these areas, to see a detailed list of what we have in stock please visit our Inventory page.
