No shrub is better adapted to the planting of any waste spot or the filling up of a gap on the bank of a creek or where some other shrub has failed to grow. It stands exposure well, growing even within the spray of salt water or in alkali soil; in fact, it thrives under almost any conditions, preferring a sandy soil however, and a situation within the influence of the sea air.

The Tamarix Gallica, Tamarix orientalis, Tamarix plumosa, and Tamarix parviflora are all very desirable.

Propagate by inserting cuttings into sandy soil in the open ground in the Winter months.
