Small family of temperate and subtropical trees, shrubs and herbs, with 4 genera and about 120 species. The foliage is feathery or needle-like which helps to reduce transpiration and enables the plants to survive in arid or salt-laden environments. Tamarix is the most important genus, with many tiny flowers in showy spikes.
