You may need to stake it when it's young, but as Plantmaiden says they are pretty hardy and will take a fair bit of battering.

Yes - I live only a mile from the sea and mine is doing fine.

Hi Doddy and welcome to GOY. buddiias are very hardy.just remember when it is established to prune it by 1/3 in oct then give it a good prune to the last two buds in march.I hope this is of some help.
