Windy & Coastal
These plants we have found popular as although they cope well in coastal areas they also work well in exposed windy areas and not all plants will be suitable in such conditions. The arbutus unedo, known as the strawberry tree, works very well in exposed windy areas as well as many of the pines and cedars such as Cedrus Atlantica Glauca. For hedges on windy sites the Griselinia, Eleagnus and Hollies are good plants. Even palms such as the chaemerops humilis and the Trachycarpus Wagnerianus cope well with dry conditions and their leaves will not shred if wind-battered.
