Tamarix Tetrandra (commonly known as the Tamarisk or Salt Cedar) is a beautiful small tree which produces magnificent, feathery plumes of pink flowers. In April and May its arching branches are smothered in masses of pink blossom, accompanied by needle-like foliage. Swaying gently in the breeze, this architectural low maintenance shrub makes a superb focal point in any garden. Tamarix Tetranda tolerates salt and strong winds, making it the perfect addition to coastal gardens. It has also been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit for its outstanding performance.
