Suggestions for suitable shrub on a cliff please

i live very near the cliffs and they have just planted a variety of big grasses which sway in the wind and shrubs in between but its rather mild in devon so you might want something more hardy.

i wish the councils would all agree.i agree with you dovefromabove but the owner of the holiday camp is denying the balls are from his range,(where else would they be from} so our commitee are writing to there insurers already one lady has had her greenhouse window smashed and there are couples with children as well.well dereck,what can i say about your photo,its a lot of space,we are allowed to have a shed 6ft x 4ft and also greenhouse but the council also provide sheds at £8 per year,im sure your plot will look fantastis in the summer i dont know how to put photos on sorry.

as long as it does the job greenbucket then anythings ok.for me im a bit impulsive and some seeds take forever to get started i do it as simply and as cheaply as i can.and cant resist when i go for a walk always to take some paper bags in your pocket to take seeds or cuttings from all the wildflowers growing by the hedges i dont always know what they are but lable them as dontknows.will wait for the suprise.they could very well be weeds,oh well.
