The Q&A Archives: Tamarisk in New York

Question: I'm building a house in Orange County, New York and would like to know if the Tamarisk tree can be grown in
this zone.

Answer: Yes. Tamerisk (Tamarix ramosissima) is very cold hardy. It does best on an acid, well drained (even sandy) soil which is not too rich and needs a location in full sun. Tamerisk is considered to be tolerant of both salt and poor dry soil, so it is one tough plant.
