Rock Salt tolerant plants?

LaurieB's picture

Looking for a list of perennial plants other than sedums, that will tolerate winter rock salt, so far sedums are the only one that I have found.  I want to plant perennials beside my walkway into my home.  I have tried minature roses, speedwell, and a few others they end up dying come the spring.  This area faces the south  east and gets morning to early afternoon sun.

Hi, LaurieB!

Sorry for the delay! If you google "perennial salt tolerant plants" there are a few hits that come up that could be of use. I recommend asking your local gardening centre, as well. You could write down some of the web suggestions and see what they say at the centre as they'd have a good idea.

Good luck and let us know what you end up going with.
