Thread: Plants that do well with salt water pool.

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Plants that do well with salt water pool.

    Anyone else have some suggestions on planting next to the pool deck. Has anyone tried Hosta's, do they survive the salt and chlorine? Any other plants that would be tolerant of these conditions.

    I have azaleas close to the issues.

    Also have some oleanders a bit farther away, but they are poisonous so be vary if you have dogs/children

    Pretty hard to kill a Hosta even if your trying. They do very well around the pool.

    Unless you are splashing a huge amount of water on the plants, it's not going to hurt anything, even if the plants are sensitive to salt.
