TAMARIX (TAMARISK)

(deciduous leaf-losing)

Tamarisks are usually seen near the coast, but they are hardy enough inland in the midlands and south of the British Isles. They are graceful shrubs, with feathery flower sprays on long, arching branches. Those that are commonly grown reach 12 ft. or more in height, but can be kept lower by pruning. Plant from September to April in ordinary or very sandy soil.

Tamarix parviflora, deep pink flowers in May.
