Difficult to say about the species without flowers.

However, Tamarix dioica and Tamarix ericoides are stated to be distributed in M.P. as per details at Tamarix


Thank you …. I will get the photographs of the flowers so that it can be identified.
A 1910 book on the Trees and Shrubs of Indore state by W F Biscoe the Conservator of Forests of Indore State has listed Tamarix ericoides as present in this area.
