Plant Hunter, by Lark Hanham

Three Tempting Tamarix

 

Lark Hanham

Tamarisk's robust, unwavering disposition never fails to impress; its ability to gather salt and then excrete it again means it thrives by the coast. This small group of 50 to 60 species offers deciduous, feathery, tactile foliage and a habit that's cedar-like. Their understated beauty is reinforced by an immensely floriferous temperament. They respond well to regular hard pruning, which stimulates flower production and rejuvenates growth. In fact, most of Europe will prune the plant into a standard tree and pollard it to the trunk each year to great effect.
