Landscape plants are often needed for difficult sites. To find plants that would grow in saline, frequently flooded soils, we evaluated 106 species on a nonirri-gated floodplain underlain with salt water along the Napa River in northern California. The site was one of many established throughout the state for landscape tree evaluation.
