Tamarisk chinensis aka Salt Cedar
z. 5 – 10 ht. 10′ – 20′
Salt-tolerant flowering shrub or small tree. Hardy survivor, will grow anywhere – including in poor, rocky soil. Pink flowers in summer. Handles windy areas well and salt spray – making it a great coastal plant. Use as a windbreak to slow the prevailing winds. Graceful, airy, arching branches. The dried and oiled wood is used to great effect in furniture details. The coppiced (cut) stems make a wonderful and sturdy trellis or wattle fence that weathers even better than willow.
All Permaculture Plants are 1-gallon sized plants.
