SEA SHORE AREAS
the plants listed below can tolerate sea shore conditions within a-quarter
of a mile or so from the actual ocean. I've seen them all growing within
400 feet of the high tide mark. Different types of terrain, of course,
will make a difference how close to the sea they can not only survive
but prosper. A few varieties can grow well very close to salt water,
on the first dune so to speak, battered by storms, winds and constant
salt spray. Therefore, in this edition I've made the two lists below.
