Look for varieties that are perfectly tolerant of the large amount of salt, the source of which is the sea, which is very close by. Even an ordinary sea breeze can bring so much of the element to your property that it will simply burn plants which are not suited to such an environment.

And about the strong winds and hurricanes is not even worth mentioning. In this case, the amount of salt is comparable to the daily batch of a plant specializing in similar products. But do not despair the number of bright and colorful plants that can thrive in such an environment will satisfy all your aesthetic needs.

Bougainvillea spectabilis, besides its colorful flowers, is wonderfully tolerant of salt, drought and different winds.

A path surrounded by trees
