If a landscape is irrigated with saline water, it’s best to include salt-tolerant species, such as Juniperus virginiana ‘Skyrocket’ (skyrocket juniper).
Quite a few species of plants can withstand small or moderate concentrations of salt in soil or water. Such salt-tolerant plants may be useful, or even essential, for landscapes irrigated with recycled water or slated for a switch to recycled water. That's because recycled water sometimes is a bit higher in salt than drinking water or other sources used for irrigation.
A number of situations may cause you to need to choose salt-tolerant plants. Two examples are as follows:
In these and other such scenarios, salt tolerance will be one of several criteria you will need to consider.
