Saltcedar

Tamarix chinensis

The Saltcedar easily inhabits moist habitats with saline soils and can grow as a tree with a single trunk or as a shrub with several spreading erect branches. They have been grown in gardens for their attractive feathery foliage, and plume-like flowers. They make good hedges in windy coastal areas.
