Tamarix parviflora DC.
Tamarix aphylla (L.) Karsten (misapplied)
early tamarisk, flowering cypress, four-stamen tamarisk, salt cedar, small flower tamarisk, small-flower tamarisk, smallflower tamarisk, small-flowered tamarisk
Native to south-eastern Europe (i.e. Albania, Greece and Yugoslavia) and western Asia.
Naturalised in many parts of South Australia and possibly also naturalised in the inland parts of southern Western Australia.
Also widely naturalised in the USA.
Note: As this species is often confused with other tamarix species (i.e. Tamarix parviflora and Tamarix aphylla), its naturalised distribution in Australia may be underestimated.
Small-flowered tamarisk (Tamarix parviflora) is an emerging environemntal weed in the inland regions of Australia, and is currently of most concern in Western Australia. As this species has often been confused with other tamarisk species (Tamarix spp.), its impact may be underestimated.
