Tamarix ramosissima 'Pink Cascade'

Tamarix ramosissima 'Pink Cascade'

tamarisk; salt cedar
First needly growth in mid-April
Common name tamarisk; salt cedar
Family tamaricaceae
Life cycle shrub/tree (Z2-8)
Flowers pink (summer)
Size 10'
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Sprays of pink flowers from July through the end of summer, with deciduous needle-like foliage. It's salt-tolerant, but luckily it will grow in our non-salty soil as well. It's likely to outgrow its position in front of our shed pretty soon - time to start thinking of its ultimate location in our garden...

Subtle orange coloration in November

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
