I live on Merritt Island, FL and have a shallow well. The well water is a little bit salty. Will the plumbago bushes tolerate salty water?

    Excessive salts can be harmful to many plants, shrubs and trees.

    Here is a link with information on plants that are tolerant to salt conditions.

    You can water your plants with rain water that is collected in rain barrels.
