 Frankenia sp.
Family: Frankeniaceae
Seaheath, Alkali Heath
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsPink flowersFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Most of the family's 80 or so species are halophytic herbs and shrubs restricted to saline, gypseous or calcareous substrates, and thus frequently encountered near coastlines. The family occurs in Mediterranean climates such as parts of California, Chile, and South Africa, with about half of all known species in Australia. They are generally found in arid or semi-arid regions with pronounced winter rains.

Rhizomatous subshrub, with somewhat fkeshy leaves, small white to pink flowers, forms clumps.

Family: Clusiaceae / Guttiferae
Seashore Mangosteen, Luli
Origin: Malaysia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.EdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Naturally grows near seashores, so it likely salt and sand tolerant. Flowers are whitish, and occur terminally in clusters of 1-3. Trees are dioecious. Seashore mangosteen is propagated by seeds, which germinate in 3-4 weeks. It may be used as a rootstock for mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana - mangosteen grafting). It is very tolerant adverse soil and climatic conditions, being adapted to growing in sandy and rocky soils near the beach in its native habitat. It also grows well in acid clay soils, and tolerates drought as well as high rainfall.

Trees are dioecious. The fruit is smooth, spherical and beaked, with a pinkish red peel. The interior is segmented, like the mangosteen, but the pulp is yellowish, thin and sour, although it has a good flavor. Most segments contain one flat seed. The roots and leaves are used medicinally to relieve itching.

Click to see full-size image Genipa clusiifolia
Family: Rubiaceae
Seven Year Apple
Origin: South Florida, Caribbean
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

It is a well-behaved, tough shrub that can be maintained at less than 10 feet high. Creamy flowers produce a bouquet worthy of the attention of the esteemed parfumiers of Europe. Fruits develop slowly over the course of one year, not seven. They turn brown when ripe. Birds are avid consumers of the fruit. The plant originates from coastal uplands. It has high salt- and drought-tolerance. A must in designs in coastal locations, it can be used with confidence in sunny, well-drained spots inland as well. Use it as an accent piece in a prominent spot, or as part of screening.

Gunnera manicata, Giant Rhubarb, Giant Gunnera, Mammutblatt, Dinosaur Food Plant

Click to see full-size image Gunnera manicata
Family: Gunneraceae
Giant Rhubarb, Giant Gunnera, Mammutblatt, Dinosaur Food Plant
Origin: Brazil
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticRegular waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Gunnera is one of the biggest and most spectacular, architectural, herbaceous plants, commonly thought of as 'giant rhubarb'. The plants need a lot of space because it is difficult to restrict their size. They look best standing as specimen plants in a damp bog garden, or beside a large pond where the reflections reveal the prickly undersides of the umbrella-sized leaves. The fat growth buds clustered in the crown are prone to frost damage, so pile the dead leaves and stems into a mound over the plants in autumn for winter protection - they make quite a feature of their own. Grow on in any good moist garden soil. Mulch the large crowns with the leaves in regions where winter temperatures are likely to drop below -5C (20F) A heavy mulch can help these plants survive -17C (0F).
