Front Line Coastal Plants

Do I make an assumption that coastal plants receive more rainfall and therefore I could plant species that do not have to be so drought tolerant? It is a nice thought. I was looking through an older reference book that I have and came accross some more lists of plants.

    Thanks for the additional list Corinne. I’m heading off to State Flora this week and will look out for these particular species. Hopefully some of them will do well on Kangaroo Island!

    Could you please send me some ideas of plants that will take the wind on the S.E.coastal areas of South Australia
