Among the emerald green, purple and pink inflorescences amaze small shrubs beautiful plants.Thin and flexible top of the branches covered with beaded florets, and in the middle part - small scaly leaves.
At a time when the wind gust disperse the panicles of inflorescences, pink mane like a fairytale horse there is a feeling that there is a magical pink rain.Immediately vspomninayutsya Yesenin beautiful lines about the transience of life: "... if I spring echoing ranyu rode on a pink horse."Very bright, piercingly sad poetic image.

tamarisk have many names, reflecting its properties, beauty and medicinal value: beaded bush, tamarisk, God tree bisernik, Kalmyk incense ... Judging by the last name, he took a fancy to and sultry Kalmyk steppe.This amazing plant survivability, simplicity is not inferior to Verbier.So often tamarisk thickets found in coastal areas of the Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčAzov and the Black Sea, on the shores of lakes, rivers and ponds along the road back roads and railroads, as well as on poor so

ils, which usually survive reddish salt marshes on the sun vaporized salt deposits.

During its long evolution tamarisk bought the property with the help of the leaves to get rid of extra salt produced strong roots.Thanks spartan conditions it differs enviable stability.Experts botanists argue that if a bush covered with a thick layer of soil or sand, the tamarisk sprout toward the sun.Successfully withstands both test survivability.If the stalk (Part branches) thrown into the lake, river or any other body of water, is caught on the soil or mud at the bottom or near the coast, plant take root, sprout and bloom magnificently.From personal experience: inadvertently mown new-planted sapling, and a month later there were new, stronger tillers.

scientists breeders for ornamental decoration of parks, gardens and squares brought tamarisk Gogenakera hybrids with white and tamarisk Karelin - with purple flowers.
Widely used to strengthen the tamarisk sandy soil, which is important for many owners of sites with light soils.

In folk, Tibetan medicine the plant is used as a curative, preventive remedy for many ailments.From its branches brewed tea sweetening tamariksovym honey.And even earlier human medicinal plants evaluated animal willingly eats succulent branches.Craftsmen of flexible vines produce openwork furniture, tables, chairs, weave baskets and other products, and of a yellowish-white wood - exquisite handicrafts.Therefore tamarisk can share the sad fate of juniper and other valuable species of wood, have become sources of dubious business.Sin lifted the ax at this beauty, and bestowed on present and future generations and nature.

I touched the flowering branches, which employ more bees.Involuntarily a desire to thwart a few branches studded with pink beads for a bouquet, but remembered that the Sinai Peninsula and in Central Asia, this plant is justly called sacred, and took his hand.Under gust gust flexible branches, as if in gratitude, bowed their flowering panicles.
