Effect of brakish water on native plant garden

Asked October 16, 2019, 10:24 PM EDT

Our community has a native plant garden at the dock. Last week the tide was high and water from Broad Creek off the South River came over the garden. It has since receded. Today we had about 2 inches of rain. I am wondering if the brakish water could have damaged the plants. My thought was that the rain today and the fact that the water receded prevented any damage. What do you think?

All you can do is wait and see. If they are affected, in the future you may have to investigate plants that will tolerate brackish water.
