Myricaria (derived from Myrica, probably the ancient name for the tamarisk, in allusion to the close affinity of the genus to the tamarisk). Tamaricaceae, A genus of about 10 species distributed from Eu. through Cent. Asia to China; closely related to Tamarix, chiefly distinguished by the 10 stamens being connate one-third to one-half, by the 3 sessile stigmas and the stalked tuft on hairs on the seeds. They are hardy shrubby or suffruticose plants with alternate scale-like lvs. and with the fls. in terminal, often panicled racemes. M. germanica, Desv. (Tamarix germanica, Linn.), is a glabrous undershrub, 4-6 ft. high, with upright, wand like branches: lvs. minute, bluish green, lanceolate, glandular-dotted: fls. light pink or whitish, in 4-6 in. long, terminal racemes, usually with lateral ones at the base; bracts produced into a narrow lanceolate point, broadly winged below, exceeding the buds; stamens connate about one-half. Cent, and S. Eu., W. Asia. S.O.B. 3:131. G.W.H. 38. M. dahurica, Ehrenb. (Tamarix dahurica, Willd.), is very similar, but racemes usually lateral, the bracts oblong-ovate, acute with a membranous margin all around, not exceeding the buds, and stamens connate only one-third. Dahuria, Transbaikalia. The cult. is the same as of tamarix; they prefer sandy, moist soil.
