We wish every home owner on the Beach took out a few Japanese roses and planted a few bushes of beach plum instead. They are commercially available! This is the best choice for your garden. You will enjoy both an ornamental shrub and yummy jam in winter. You can protect your privacy by forming a prickly green hedge on your property boundary; most importantly, you will help the Beach! — Photo Alexey Zinovjev [41.9667 -70.64344] [acme mapper]
