 Which Evergreen Shrubs are hurricane resistant?

Oh, goodness! Numerous questions come in about deer resistant plants. You are the first to ask about hurricane-resistant plants.

I would avoid podocarpus since it doesn’t do well in soggy soils. Both Florida anise-tree and distylium will do better. However, I would contact a pro at your local garden center for advice. Or, a horticulturist at a botanical garden in the area such as Magnolia. Cypress Gardens will be a great resource once they reopen.

Thanks for writing!
