Tamarisk








This caught my eye yesterday when walking up to my car past the allotments behind the hospital: Tamarisk, Tamarix gallica. It is not uncommon in sandy, seaside locations, often planted as a windbreak where it will tolerate dry, salty conditions. It is introduced from around the Mediterranean, being endemic to Saudi Arabia and parts of North Africa.
