Salt tolerant plants and trees are a must for Key West and the Florida Keys. Our tropical climate — including high winds, salt water inundation and even salt water mist — makes it tough for any except native plants to thrive. One direction that many are taking is encouraging replacement of failing plants with those that are native and more likely to thrive. There is also the option of looking for those non-natives that evolved in a similar climate; there may be issues that will have to be dealt with by planting them here, such as pH differences, nutritional needs, but that can be dealt with if the plant is important to you. One thing is certain, salt tolerance must be looked at to ensure the viability of your landscape plants.
Not all plants may be available at all times.
