Planning a coastal garden can get to be tough at times. Who would have thought that most plants don’t love intense heat, wind, and even salt? When planning your coastal garden, keep these perfect plants and coastal garden ideas in mind!
African Lily is used to hot, humid places. Keep them in a pot located in a sunny area for simple and easy care! Early seedlings should be watered twice daily. This is one of my favorite coastal garden ideas!
Lady’s Mantle grows fast (and often out of control) but if you cut back flowering, you can keep it easily corralled. Plant in an area that receives ample afternoon shade. Use this article from Bless My Weeds for other growing tips!
Named plant of the year by Bees and Roses, Allium is a great addition to coastal gardens anywhere in the country! If you have a problem with pests, plant Allium as it’s onion-y scent repels most pests away!
Attract butterflies to your coastal garden with the deliciously floral scent of Hyssop. Because it has drought-tolerant properties, it’s perfect for gardens facing tough growth conditions across the coast. Make sure it’s planted in an area of well-drained soil!
One of my favorites on the list, Bleeding Heart is easy to grow in any zone, making for a beautiful addition to literally any coastal garden. Make sure to cut back this flower after blooms die off in early fall.
Known for it’s insanely great fragrance, Flowering Tobacco can literally be grown in ANY growth environment. I recommend using this as a border flower in your flower garden this summer.
Stick Russian Sage in an area of sunlight, and sit back because natural takes care of the rest. Well, almost, you’ll need to make sure that your sage receives a few inches of water per week. But as long as it receives adequate rain fall, the care is so easy!
Known for providing flower gardens with a continuous bloom from May to October, the Veronica plant will have to be deadheaded for beautiful blooms. However, I think the work is totally worth it for a plant that blooms non-stop all summer long!
