With its arching, bushy habit, a Tamarisk shrub is a good ornamental choice for coastal situations. Tiny, green scale-like leaves sit on near-black branches and provide a great canvas for large plumes of pale pink flowers from May to June.
Tamarisk prefers a sunny site but does very well in both seaside and inland situations. Perfect as a coastal windbreak, the four stamen Tamarisk will happily withstand salt-spray. The soft pink flowers are visited by honeybees for their nectar, so it is also of great value to wildlife gardens.
The ideal screen or windbreak for the coast, Tamarix Tetranda also makes a great ornamental shrub.

Tamarisk is a fast grower and will achieve at least 40cm of growth a year when planted correctly. It is suited to hedging from 1-4m in height.
When planted properly most hedges need little attention - view our hedge planting advice here. Hard prune after flowering for the most profuse display the following year. Tamarisk does not need a lot of maintenance but can be tidied up in winter. A good tip - Don't forget to feed your Tamarix hedges after planting - view our care advice section for more information.
