Coastal Shrubs

Planting costal shrubs is totally different from the ones growing in normal gardens. One of the most obvious issues is the high level of salt contained in the soil beside the seaside. Also, the strong ocean winds and water evaporated from the sea can also have negative effects on the plants as well.

Different varieties have different type of leaves in appearance, thickness and shapes. Multiple leaflets will be contained in one leaf. During the flowing season, this plant can provide extreme beauty for your summer garden by the full blossom of their tiny flowers.
