Tamarix






TAMARIX GALLICA.--Common Tamarisk. India to Europe. This shrub often in

favoured maritime places reaches to a height of fully 10 feet, with long

and slender branches, and spikes of pretty, rosy-pink flowers produced

at the end of summer. For sea-side planting, it is an invaluable shrub,

and on account of its feathery appearance and wealth of showy flowers is

well worthy of being included in our list of ornamental and useful

shrubs.



T. PARVIFLORA (_syns T. africana_ and _T. tetrandra_), South-eastern

Europe and Levant, is a nearly allied species, with white, pinky-tinged

flowers.
