Tom’s Thumb specializes in helping you with your coastal landscaping. With our harsh salt winds from the southeast, planting choices are limited for the Galveston coastal home. Always ask our experienced staff before you purchase a plant for the beach or bay.
Our top picks for shrubs in the 3-4’ range are Carissa (Natal plum), Dwarf Hawthorn, Pittosporum, Sea grape and Muhly grasses. Yuccas, Century plants, and Necklace pods are also reliable in this size range.
Plant selections in the 2’ range are Bulbine, Lantana, and Society garlic. Wedelia, Purslane, and Periwinkles are good choices for 1’ range.
