Main Uses

Sea Plum is native to Florida and is said to be a very low maintenance tree.  This makes a great coastal tree with its high salt water tolerance.

Considered a front line tree, the Sea Plum is tolerant of extreme exposure to salt spray. 

It is also used as a screening shrub, accent tree, front line salt tolerance plant, specimen tree, patio tree, medium tree, and the bush variety even adapts well to espalier.

We have three different varieties of Sea Plum
