Bay Cedar, Suriana maritima, is an interesting and unique medium to large shrub with soft or felt like, linear, gray-green leaves, which offset the small cup shaped yellow flowers. Bay Cedar is highly adapted for salty, windy seaside locations with well drained soils, but has very poor frost tolerance. This is a unique native shrub that deserves more use in coastal landscapes. This plant's natural distribution is from coastal central Florida and South Florida through the Caribbean. Bay Cedar requires strong sun exposure.
