Tamarisk (Tamarix tetranda)
A maginificent large shrub (or even a small tree) loved in gardens up and down the country for its magnificent feathery pink flower plumes that appear in May and June along the arching branches of the previous years growth The foliage has a fine filigree appearance and is light green in colour, the branches and flowers sway in the gentlest of breezes.
Tamarisk shrubs are easy to grow and are ideal as focal points or at the back of a mixed border. This is a tough shrub that does well on exposed sites inland and is brilliant for coastal gardens where they also make great hedges and windbreaks, completely unaffected by the salt laden winds. 3m x 3m.

Tamarisk shrubs grow best in most well drained soils with the exception of thin chalky conditions. Best planted in full sun, pruning can be carried out after flowering to produce good flowering branches for the following year and to prevent the shrubs from becoming too top heavy over time.
