Finding great trees that can cope with tough conditions such as drought, wind, salt, or sand can be challenging. So here we have done the work for you! These trees will manage tough conditions with aplomb and look beautiful to boot!
Challenging conditions for gardening is a quite common problem in many areas of Australia. Coastal areas for instance offer amazing lifestyle opportunities however sandy soils and salty air are often not a plant’s best friend. Likewise dry, windy, and exposed regions along with those prone to damp and waterlogged soils can be challenging too.
We have collated a selection of trees that will work hard to perform under some of the most challenging conditions. For example, the Olive tree is as tough as old boots or the Indian Summer® Crepe Myrtles which never cease to amaze us for the locations we find them thriving in.
Please do your homework to cross-reference the particular conditions you have and seek advice from your local garden centre to confirm your choice. These trees are a great starting point for anyone who needs a tough and hardy tree.
