Tamarisk by the Sea

I took this photograph of Tamarisk stems whilst at Durlston Head, Swanage. I’d walked as far as the footpath would allow and faced East towards Old Harry Rocks where it was a little more sheltered. There was a lovely screen of this plant along the edge and the late afternoon sun picked up the red stems really nicely.

I love this plant with its wispy nature but I hadn’t seen a species with such red stems before.

    1. That’s interesting Steve – thanks. Yes – Tamarisk is a natural coastal plant and seemed to be thriving in this very windy and exposed spot. It’s a plant I’ve liked for a long time even though I knew I didn’t have the right conditions for it.
