Tamarisk

The Fremont River corridor sports the feathery branches and pink flowers of the tamarisk, an exotic introduced from the Mediterranean in the 1930s. It was brought to the southwest as a river bank stabilizer and is now nearly impossible to control and eliminate, despite on-going eradication efforts.
