please help with name Tamarix ericoides Rottl. et Willd. in Gujarati.
One name “Gajri” is listed at Gujarat State Biotechnology Mission
Would it be ગજરી ?

Have no clue about the provenance and meaning of this name but ગજરી seems to be the most plausible transliteration.

Grows in rocky riverbeds according to DR RI Patel, is called Chhini as in છીની or Luti as in લુટી
hope this helps
Chhini seems to be the tribal name for most of the tamarix…
hope this helps

It’s looks like casuariana.

Most probably Tamarix ericoides; please wait for validating comments.


Angiosperm or Gymnosperm?:
I am confused on what this could be?
PHOTOGRAPHED yesterday on the river bed, near Barvi Dam, Badlapur, Maharashtra.

may be Tamarix sp

Species of Tamarix … most probably T. ericoides (family: Tamaricaceae)

Ya surely looks like some species of Tamarix

Near by area … has collected/photographed Tamarix gallica var indica. So this may also be of same sps.
