Question: What perennials grow best along the gulf coast (500 feet from the beach) and able to withstand wind and salt air? Rosalynde Carter Beaumont, TX

Answer: It sounds like your best bet is native wildflowers and shrubs. You can get a "Texas Native Plant Directory" by writing the Texas Dept. of Agriculture, P.O. Box 12847, Austin, TX 78711. This includes a list of all nurseries in the state that supply native plants. A good nursery to try in Texas would be, Wild Seed Farms P.O. Box 308 Eagle Lake, TX 77434-0308 409-234-7353
