    Exclamation Help please. Planting around saltwater pool.

    i tried googling what plants would look nice but alot of the results came up with just names and then id have to go on google images and see 10 different var. of each. so im hoping that with your help i can find out the names and info about some plants that will not only look beautiful but will also withstand the saltwater. any help is appreciated. If this isnt in the right section SORRY.

    Thanks again guys

    Are you looking for CP's or just any plants? I would figure that most CP's would not survive salt water for very long (but there are ways around this problem). Also is it true saltwater pool (open to the ocean/bay) or is it a brackish pool (less salt content then ocean water)?
