Quite often it is best to plant a tree as a multi stem bush rather than a clear stemmed tree where the conditions are exposed. The mechanical strength of the tree is sorely tested in strong winds if the tree is top heavy with a standard trunk and rounded canopy, especially when establishing from a cosy nursery environment. This is particularly true with this coastal tolerant variety and Tamarix tentandra bush has lower branches making it bottom heavy and far better to establish in buffeting breezes.
Wispy green foliage emerges in the spring and can turn a lovely yellow in the autumn. Its real joy comes from is puffy pink floral display in the late spring and early summer. Tamarix tentandra bush makes a great coastal tree but is just as at home inland. It thrives on most free draining soils and as its flower is set on new season’s growth it can be pruned every spring before its foliage emerges to ensure a vivid display.
Mature height: 3-5m
