Tamarix ramosissima is a plant like lantana or impatiens, which can be great or problematic depending on where it is grown. In our NC climate, it is a phenomenal garden performer, thriving in both dry and moist soils. The 12' tall woody stems are adorned with glaucous juniper-like foliage and topped from May until frost with stunning open plumes of light pink flowers...a great source of honeybee nectar. In desert climates, Tamarix ramosissima should not be planted since it gets carried away by vigorously reseeding near waterways and riparian areas...even in saltwater. Perhaps planting millions of these in the Southwest during the Federal WPA projects of the 1930s wasn't such a great idea. We, however, have grown this for 2 decades and have never seen a seedling.
