Flora of Panipat: Tamarix aphylla from Delhi Parallel Branch Near Panipat:
Tamarix aphylla
from Delhi Parallel Branch Near Panipat
A xerophytic small tree, growing wildly

Very nice plant, pls also locate female flowers. A ‘must see’ plant on our trip.

This plant in this series looks like a herb/small plant… but I thought it was more like a small (often)  (rarely quite tall) tree… often planted in SW USA as a windbreak or soil erosion prevention…

Yes … There are medium size trees of TA are also there in our area

This is Tamarix dioica as per images and details herein.
Looks different from Tamarix aphylla as per images and details herein.

Tamarix sp.

Tamarix dioica

Is that a Tamarix gallica var indica
Please check following link for that
and one link on our group- efi thread

I am confused between Tamarix dioica or Tamarix gallica var. indica

I am more confused than you. Species are generally distinguished on the basis of leaf sheaths, and that too in clear close ups. I have never sure about my Tamarix species in Delhi

Flora of Pakistan writes, Tamarix indica as the valid accepted name and Tamarix gallica var. indica as synonym.

I am safe, I generally don’t get dragged when it comes to tropical trees, even if it is mango. I am never sure. But yes herbaceous plants of N W Himalyas, I won’t sleep till matter gets solved.

Is it Tamarix ramosissima

I think this is Tamarix dioica (as originally suggested by …) as per images and details herein.

In Nubra valley, Ladakh in the sand dunes, on 16.6.22.

The plant is very resistant to salinity, high and low temperature. Should be used in shelterbelt to check sand dunes
