AbstractEvaluates the survival and subsequent growth of Ilex glabra potted plants transplanted various distances from the beach on Santa Rosa Island, Florida. All individuals planted 92 meters in landward of the Gulf of Mexico died. Individuals planted 124, 170, and 200 meters from the Gulf survived to varying degrees depending on the distance. Ilex glabra grown in 3 gallon treepot containers remained larger after transplanting than those grown in 1 gallon containers.
