Tree identification please

HannaNHannaN Posts: 13

Can you please help me to identify the tree? We moved in last summer and started clearing the garden. Half of the tree was dead and had to be cut (branches snapped upon the lightest touch). Is there any chance to reshape it? It is flowering so pretty that it would be a shame to cut to down...

    Not sure but I think it might be a tamarisk. The only thing I know about tamarisks is that they drop goo onto your clothes.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    Thank you all for your help! Is there any chance the branches will grow back? The remaining bit flowers so beautifully...
