Bermuda is not the easiest place to grow plants, we are exposed to salt laden winds and stormy weather as well as prolonged periods of drought. I planted Senecio vitalis in several areas near the coast full sun and inland - Bermuda is only two miles wide at its widest point - and it has done extremely well. Has anyone hade experience with it on a coastal area and know whather it has salt spray tolerance?
