Some things that come to mind are a stronger root system (either deeper roots or a more extensive shallow network) to anchor it, mechanisms to minimize water loss (smaller leaves, waxy surface coating, protection from predation), perhaps an affinity for growing in protected areas such as at the base of trees or near shrubbery that may protect it from heavy winds, and the root system would probably be a good place for the plant to store more water, like a tuberous root or something, because with the strong wind there is a possibility it could be a dry climate. That's what comes to mind, I'm sure there are other things too. Hope that helps!
