    I did a condo on A1A, it was tough. Is it on the ocean or on the intercoastal? This place had a lot of wind. Betrock's says Purple Lantana and Blue Daze are highly salt tolerant. I used a different Lantana and Blue Daze but in front of the building so I can't vouch for wind tolerance.

    I found that there isn't much info on wind tolerance. I did learn salt tolerance is a totally different ball game then wind tolerance. You would not believe the wind on the ocean here. We are in zone 10, 10b by the ocean, although I am not sure that is sunset. Palm Beach County, FL.
