Tamarisk species

Another lovely old-fashioned shrub. Some people think this is a bit weedy - perish the thought. She is tough, loves the dry, flowers a couple of times a year for long periods and is pink!! Too perfect.

My garden is large and finally reaching a stage where it is beginning to look mature, rather than raw and new. Now I am trying to develop planting combinations which are attractive in all seasons; unusual leaf shape and colour and so on. This shrub (I have a few) enables me to make long "sight lines" with something wonderful in the distance because it is quite tall. It stands out and draws you on to see what it is just around the corner.

A very worthwhile plant. Posted by Picasa
