Frontline Coastal versus Coastal. Growing position is important.

Coastal trees are trees that are tolerant of the typically sandy and salty conditions associated with living along the coast. But only a select few can be called Frontline Coastal.

Allocasuarina verticillata

Drooping Sheoak

A medium sized bushy tree that has a rounded head. It has weeping dark green branchlets that produce brown male flowers from winter to early spring. These trees when young can look rather sparse and scraggly but this changes with age. They sound like the ocean when the wind blows through their leaves.

Banksia integrifolia

Coastal Banksia

This distinctive native tree is found on the east coast of Australia. It has rough patterned bark and long green leaves with a silver underside. Pale yellow, cylinder-shaped flowers can be seen in summer to winter and can be up to 12cm long. The seed pods stay on the branch for long periods and look very ornamental.

Banksia integrifolia fastigiata 'Sentinel'

This is a small shrub with medium frost tolerance for use as a dense narrow flowering screen. Prefering full sun to light shade it produces upright lemon brush-like flowers from late summer to winter. Responds well to pruning.
