Great question!

University of North Carolina has an online guide of salt tolerant plants. Unfortunately, distylium isn’t included. However, Rose of Sharon, hydrangea macrophylla, abelia, barberry, butterfly bush, gardenia, viburnum and weigela are on the lists with varying degrees of tolerance. I hope some of these work for your garden. I would also check with your local garden or extension agent for advice.

Thanks for writing!
