Tamarix sp., Tamarisk, Athel tree, Salt Cedar
Tamarix nilotica

Tamarix sp.

Tamarisk, Athel tree, Salt Cedar
Family: Tamaricaceae
Origin: Europe, Africa, China and Japan
USDA Plant Hardiness MapLarge shrub 5-10 ft tallBig tree taller than 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersWhite, off-white flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, mature plant cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Salt cedar is a deciduous shrub/small tree that grows most successfully along riparian zones , that is, along streams and/or lake edges. Its roots extend deeply into the soil and depend on ground water for water supply. Saltcedar's high water consumption further stresses native vegetation by lowering ground water levels and can also dry up springs and marshy areas.

Tambourissa sp. is native to Mauritius, a small island in the Indian Ocean, but the tree has become quite popular in Mediterranean countries, due to its striking beauty. This species is a big tree, growing taller than 20 feet, though some specimens are known to reach 30 feet. The plant grows in an upright position with an umbrella-like crown that creates an incredibly picturesque sight when the red, crimson and vinous flowers blossom.

The tree is quite versatile in the sense that it can be grown in full sun or partial shade, making it highly recommendable for outdoor landscaping projects. But it can also be grown in containers, thus giving the possibility of having a striking ornamental tree inside the home.

The flowers are highly attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds, as well as to humans, being known for their sweet aroma. This tree has been used for ethnomedical purposes in the past, such as for the treatment of certain skin conditions and for relieving sore throats.

Tambourissa sp. is adaptable to different climates and cold weather, though it is generally recommended for USDA Zone 9-11. In cold regions, the plant needs to be grown in pots and taken inside when temperatures drop. Special care should be taken to make sure that the soil is kept evenly moist but not waterlogged and that the pot has adequate drainage. During winter, fertilization should be reduced significantly, to prevent over-stimulating the new growth which could be damaged by cold weather.
