Plants Ideal For a Salt Marsh

They next discuss the plants on the other side of the salt marsh, they must be durable plants as well. And Rebecca says they are great plants to use if you live on the ocean. Many people that live on the ocean utilize inland type plants and they will occasionally die when there are things like floods, as they have learned in New York City. Rebecca instead prefers plants like Gray Dogwood, sumac and beach plum, they are all gorgeous plants that have incredible fall color and ornamental qualities and can deal with occasional flood and salt spray without any detrimental effects. Eric noticed service berry which is not a plant that he would have expected to have been tremendously salt tolerant but here it is in full fruit. It is a wonderful wildlife plant. This is an experiment that is ongoing. Eric feels they have done a great job of showing off some super tough plants.
