_Plumbago zeylanica_L. is a sprawling shrub native to coastal dunes, dry
forest and shrublands of the Old World tropics and the Hawaiian Islands.
In Hawaii, it grows from sea level to 610 m. elevation, and is becoming
more commonly used in drought tolerant landscaping. No other info on its
salt absorbing qualities, though, except that, since it is _mainly_ a
coastal plant, it is salt tolerant. Its Hawaiian name is 'Ilie'e (ee
lee ay' ay).
