Cool colours and beautiful textures with small leafed Westringia and Santolina(?) by Secret Gardens of Sydney. Not only do fine-leaved plants withstand heavy coastal winds, but they look great when mass planted adjacent to other fine-leaved plants.
If you were to use drift wood this would be awesome for a beach reception style thing. Very natural, but striking. Drill holes in wood, place tea lights. Beautiful outdoor table center piece for the picnic table---AROUND THE GARDEN POOL
