Tamarisk is an unusual, tall, whispy shrub with incredible character. It doesn't fit easily into a manicured landscape, but in the right informal setting it is spectacular. Fine textured deciduous foliage on slender, arching branches. Pink flowers in late spring/early summer. Full sun. Grows to 10-13' tall x 8-13' wide. Lives happily in normal landscape conditions, but is also tolerant of poor soil, salt, and coastal conditions. Can be used as a windbreak and is effective on dry slopes for erosion control. Deer resistant. Zone 3. Our plants are big and beautiful, 7-8' tall.
