Looking for flowering plants for salt air climate..
I am trying to find flowering plants to put around my pond which is located in Brigantine NJ (BEACH)which is Zone 7 I believe. The location gets full sun most of the day. I was wondering what grows and will live in a salt air climate and would need to deal with heavy winds in the winter time if I plant them directly in the dirt around the pond. I am hoping to keep the flowers/plants in a container/pot and place the pots near the pond pavers if I can.....if they may die with such a small planter I will be forced to plant them in the ground around my pond. I'm also looking for something that wont get to big. Any suggestions on what will add color to my pond surroundings and will thrive in the salt air....?? THANKS A MILLION!!
