Pollen and sap can etch into the paint if not dealt with in a timely manner. Wax or a coating act as a sacrificial layer. Ceramic coatings will last longer, and make cleaning sap or pollen and other contaminates easier, but will still degrade over time. A good sealant will do the same, to a lesser degree, over time.
Neither will be good if you can't at least wash your car weekly, as it's the build up and caked on stuff that becomes hard to remove. My car is coated and I often alternate a full hand wash to a foam pressure wash as I don't always have time to hand wash. 95% of stuff comes off with the foam dwelling and pressure rinse.
