The grey blue green foliage of Tamarix Africana is a lovely contrast against a blue sky.
The wispy canopy and profuse pink flowers in the spring makes this a great choice for a small garden if a routine after flowering pruning is undertaken.
Tough for coastal areas and light soils, this versatile tree is happiest on free draining soils. Its light foliage is also very well equipped to take strong winds without harm.
